Abstract

We have observed what we believe to be a new phenomenon in nanocrystalline diamond membranes. The optical thickness of the membrane is changed under laser irradiation, which leads to a spectral shift of interference fringes in the transmission and photoluminescence spectra of high-quality thin self-supporting nanocrystalline membranes. The direction of the spectral shift (red/blue) can be tuned by the ambient air pressure. The effect is reversible and is accompanied by changes in photoluminescence intensity. We interpret the results in terms of the changes in the index of refraction caused by the photoinduced adsorption/desorption of air molecules that subsequently affect the properties of subgap energy states related to the surface and the grain boundaries of the nanocrystals.

Figures (3)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Effect of laser irradiation on transmission of NCD membrane. Ambient air pressure of 7 Pa and at room temperature. Insets are zoomed details. Black solid curves, before irradiation; red dashed curves, after 90 min cw laser irradiation.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Effect of laser irradiation on PL of NCD membrane. Ambient air pressure of 7 Pa and at room temperature. Black solid curve, before irradiation; red dashed curve, after 60 min femtosecond laser irradiation. Inset, index of refraction versus wavelength. Black squares (red circles) are values of index of refraction obtained from interference maxima of PL spectrum of the unexposed (exposed) membrane; solid curve, dispersion of the bulk diamond refractive index.

Fig. 3

Effects of laser irradiation and of ambient air pressure on PL of NCD membrane (irradiation conditions as in Fig. 2). Full squares, time evolution of the photoinduced changes in PL spectra under pressure of 7 Pa; open squares, time evolution after inflow of the atmospheric air pressure ( 10 5   Pa ) . Upper panel, the spectral position of the chosen interference maximum (nearby 595 nm); lower panel, the PL intensity at 595 nm.
