Abstract: Diamond is one of the most important engineering materials for its extreme hardness, high thermal conductivity value and chemical inertness. Due to its high hardness and strength, it can be ideal candidates for AFM probe or micro-needle. In this research, micro cone-like shaped diamond tips with high aspect ratio formed using reactive ion etching (RIE) method. The scanning electron microscope (SEM), transmission electron microscope (TEM) and micro-Raman spectroscopy were used to study the surface morphology a…
