Crystalline diamond has some unique and extreme properties that make it an attractive semiconductor in certain electronic applications such as in high-power systems and high-temperature environments. However, since a source of low-cost single crystal diamond does not exist, its widespread use is not commercially attractive. A cheaper form of diamond is polycrystalline diamond, which has been recently routinely grown on silicon by the high- pressure microwave-source plasma deposition technique. Large- grain thick polycrystalline films have been obtained with properties approaching those of single-crystal diamond. This report describes results obtained from optical and electrical methods used in evaluating these films for use as ultraviolet radiation sensors and as a capacitor dielectric.
