    Opposite to most other deposition methods, the dominating nucleation and growth mechanism during ion-beam deposition of energetic ions in the range between 10 eV and 10 keV occurs in a region of a few nanometers below the surface of the growing film. This process is called 'subplantation' �...

  • Ion bombardment as the initial stage of diamond film growth. Liao, Meiyong; Qin, Fuguang; Zhang, Jianhui; Liu, Zhikai; Yang, Shaoyan; Wang, Zhanguo; Lee, Shuit-Tong // Journal of Applied Physics;02/01/2001, Vol. 89 Issue 3, p1983 

    It is believed that during the initial stage of diamond film growth by chemical-vapor deposition (CVD), ion bombardment is the main mechanism in the bias-enhanced-nucleation (BEN) process. To verify such a statement, experiments by using mass-separated ion-beam deposition were carried out, in...
