The thermal stability of nanocrystalline diamond (NCD) films grown on mirror-polished silicon substrates by biased enhanced microwave plasma chemical vapor deposition was investigated. Different pieces of a NCD sample were annealed for 1 h in an ambient argon atmosphere at 200, 400, 600, and 800 °C. The structural and mechanical properties of as-grown and annealed samples were assessed. The surface roughness and high hardness of the samples remained fairly constant with annealing temperature.
