Paper Title:
Study on EDM Polishing of CVD Diamond Films
  Abstract

Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) diamond is known for its superior characteristics such as hardness, toughness and wear resistance. However, due to these factors, machining CVD diamond is a difficult material removal process. A new technique to polish CVD diamond film efficiently is reported in the present paper. In the CVD deposition process, boron was doped into diamond to fabricate high-quality semi-conductive film, which make it possible to machine diamond film by electro discharged machining (EDM) method. The relationship between EDM parameter and removal processing was investigated in details. The machined surface of boron doped (B-doped) diamond films was studied by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and Raman Scattering Spectroscopy (Raman). The experimental results show that EDM polishing is a highspeed material removal and low cost method for CVD diamond polishing. When the discharge current and pulse-on time increase in a certain range, the cutting-off speed and roughness will increase correspondingly. The roughness of EDM polished CVD diamond film surface is Ra<0.5μm when the discharge current is at 4A and pulse-on time is at 200μs.
