Surface Chemistry of Diamond
2015 (English)In: Novel Aspects Of Diamond: From Growth To Applications, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2015, 53-83 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
The diamond material possesses very attractive properties, such as superior electronic properties (when doped), in addition to a controllable surface termination. During the process of diamond synthesis, the resulting chemical properties will mainly depend on the adsorbed species. These species will have the ability to influence both the chemical and electronic properties of diamond. All resulting (and interesting) properties of a terminated diamond surface, make it clear that surface termination is very important for especially those applications in which diamond can function as an electrode material. Theoretical modeling has during the last decades been proven to become highly valuable in the explanation and prediction of experimental results. Simulation of the dependence of various factors influencing the surface reactivity, will aid important information about surface processes including surface stability, modification and functionalization. Other examples include thin film growth mechanisms and surface electrochemistry.
