The present issue of physica status solidi (a) contains a collection of papers from the 9th International Workshop on Surface and Bulk Defects in CVD Diamond Films (SBDD IX) held in Diepenbeek-Hasselt, Belgium, 18–20 February 2004.
The invited lecture by R. Sauer et al., ‘Radiative recombination in phosphorus-doped CVD diamond’  from this workshop is Editor's Choice of this issue.
The proceedings of the workshop series are published already for the sixth time in this journal. This year, they are combined with the Proceedings of the international workshop on Defects and Impurities in Crystalline Boron Nitride Compounds, which was also held in Diepenbeek–Hasselt, 20–21 February 2004, as a joint event with SBDD IX. Guest editors of this part are Etienne Goovaerts and Sergiu V. Nistor.
