Characterization of Metal Coated Diamond Crystallites by Combined Photoacoustic Effect and Photothermal Radiometry
Languages of publication
Photoacoustic effect and photothermal radiometry were applied to characterise the thermal properties of diamond crystallites which were coated by a Cu film, a Cr film and a Cr-Cu film. The Cu-coated diamond exhibits a considerable thermal barrier at the Cu-diamond interface which had disappeared for the crystallites with a thin bond Cr layer between diamond and Cu. The comparison of the responses of both measurement techniques reveals the non-negligible influence of the optical absorption in the visible and IR on the deduced thermal parameters.
