- atmospheric pressures;
- hydrogen-hydrocarbon mixtures;
Crystalline diamond coatings can now be vapor deposited from hydrogen-hydrocarbon mixtures at less than atmospheric pressures and temperatures of about 800°-1000°C by using activated gases. This paper briefly reviews results from our studies of microwave plasma assisted vapor deposition and mechanistic hypotheses explaining why the growth of diamond occurs rather than graphite.
