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 an… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
