Boron doped diamond films were deposited onto (100) orientated Si substrates using a thermal filament CVD method. Boron trioxide was used as a doping source and samples with boron to carbon (B/C) ratios of 0, 10, 100, and 1000 ppm were prepared for the optical measurements. The infrared (IR) results reveal the formation of an ultrathin SiC layer at the interface between Si and diamond. Furthermore, the IR data confirm the resistivity data obtained from electrical measurements. Raman spectroscopy was used to probe the quality and homogeneity of the diamond films. Upon increasing B/C ratio the diamond phonon line shifts to lower frequency and is also broadened revealing a softening of the diamond. In addition, the optical absorption was found to increase strongly with increasing B/c ratio.
