Abstract : Work at Research Triangle Institute during this quarter concentrated on establishing directions and meaningful collaborations through which progress towards large-area, single-crystal diamond could be obtained. Three formal subcontracts with Jerry Whitten (NCSU), Max Swanson (UNC), and Robert Nemanich (NCSU) on the RTI prime have been established to pursue ab initio diamond surface kinetics, ion implantation studies, and atomic scale characterization of diamond respectively. The program here at RTI has adopted two approaches to pursue large-area, single crystal diamond:(1) heteroepitaxial diamond growth (2) diamond bonding, consolidation, and lift-off These two approaches have dictated the experimented directions for the program. The formal collaboration with Jerry Whitten and informal collaborations with Michael Frenklach now add theoretical capability to the RTI diamond program.
