High resolution structural characterisation of laser-induced defect clusters inside diamond

Abstract:

Laser writing with ultrashort pulses provides a potential route for the manufacture of three-dimensional wires, waveguides and defects within diamond. We present a transmission electron microscopy (TEM) study of the intrinsic structure of the laser modifications and reveal a complex distribution of defects. Electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) indicates that the majority of the irradiated region remains as sp3 bonded diamond. Electrically-conductive paths are attributed to the formation o...
