Low temperature synthesis of transparent conductive boron doped diamond films for optoelectronic applications: Role of hydrogen on the electrical properties


Optically transparent diamond electrodes in the form of polycrystalline thin layers were synthesized at low temperatures (250°C) using chemical vapor deposition technique. Low temperature synthesis opens the route towards development of a wide range of applications, which would exploit superior properties of diamond layers as a corrosion resistant, electrically conductive and optically transparent functional coating.
