Monte Carlo simulations are adopted to develop a numerical program to study the electron motion in the H2/CH4 gas mixture and the non-uniform electric field during diamond synthesis via Electric Assisted Chemical Vapor Deposition (EACVD) in order to understand this dynamical process. It is proved in this paper that there exists a reverse electric field near the substrate. With this reverse electric field, the effective radicals such as CH3+ and CH+ can be speeded up and impact on the substrate with a higher speed, thus increase the probability of bonding. At last the electron average energy distribution and the steady space distributions of the effective radicals such as CH3, CH3+, CH+ and H under this field distribution are given in this paper.
