Abstract : The primary objectives of an Advanced Study Institute (ASI) are to contribute to the dissemination of advanced knowledge not yet available in standard university courses and the formation of contacts among scientists from different countries. An Advanced Study Institute is a high level activity at which a carefully defined subject is presented in a systematic and coherently structured program. The subject is treated in considerable depth by lectures eminent in their fields, and of international standing. The presentations are made to students who are scientists already specialized in the field, or possessing an advanced general scientific background. The lectures provide the basis for seminar discussions and the presentation an examination of recent research findings. The presentation of the latest research results of the participants should, however, not dominate an ASI. The goal of this NATO- Advanced Study Institute is to bring together scientists and engineers from various disciplines to discuss and clarify our current understanding of (1) the growth of diamond and diamond-like films, (2) the characterization of these materials, (3) the optical, physical and mechanical properties of these films, (4) the relationship of these properties to structure and processing, and (5) to indicate the current and potential technological applications of these new diamond and diamond-like materials.
