Abstract

A polished diamond (110) surface was observed to undergo surface rearrangement above ˜700 °C to a micro faceted diamond surface when in contact with a nickel film and in the presence of hydrogen. Formation of a graphitic layer at the diamond-nickel interface above 700 °C was observed in the absence of hydrogen. The presence of 0.1 Torr of hydrogen was shown to be sufficient to prevent graphite formation at the nickel-diamond interface.
