Chemical Vapor Deposition – CVD can be used for creation of synthesized diamonds. The result of the process is the microstructure which is composed of numerous small grains. Such structure can be applied in various areas, like medicine, electronics, micromechanical systems, microelectromechanical systems – MEMS and many others. For these and many other applications, one of the most important feature is the electrical conductivity. Although the natural diamond is an excellent insulator, synthesized diamonds show different behavior. The exploring of this feature is a complex area with a strong convolution between grain size and sp2 bond ing effect. The optimization of the synthesized diamond properties requires the revealing of the size and the shape of the created crystallites. Due to the size of grains being significantly reduced, the fractal theory can help in analysis of the grain morphology and especially of electrical conductivity.
