Abstract: We report atomic resolution images of chemical vapor deposition grown epitaxial diamond (100) films obtained in ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) with a scanning tunneling microscope. A (2x1) dimer surface reconstruction and amorphous atomic regions are observed. The (2x1) unit cell is measured to be 0.51±0.01X0.25±0.01 nm². The amorphous regions are identified as amorphous carbon. A radial structure 1.5 nm in diameter is observed on a plane at a 20° slope to the (2x1) surface. Tunneling current versus voltage spectra in UHV and Raman spectra are also obtained.
