Abstract

Excimer laser irradiation of a single-crystalline silicon surface immersed under cyclohexane liquid is demonstrated to form diamond particulates. Scanning electron microscopy and Raman spectroscopy have been used to study the deposited particulates. A mechanism based on the condensation of energetic carbon atoms into diamond-like films is proposed to explain the process.
