Investigation of the Crystal Defects in Synthesized Diamond by Synchrotron Radiation Topography

Article Preview

Crystal defects in a large diamond crystal synthesized by high pressure and high temperature (HPHT) method were investigated by synchrotron radiation topography. Five bundles of dislocations were observed in the specimen. Two bundles of the dislocations are in the <100> direction and three of the others are extended at <110>. The Burgers vectors of the dislocations are different within the same bundle as the extinction hinted. The dislocations in <100> direction possess higher energy than the dislocations in <110> and {111}, so they are in the metastable state. The <100> dislocations has not been found in natural diamond yet. The reason of that was the great difference of the growth rate of synthetic and natural diamonds.
