Abstract

We report the x-ray photocurrent response of a coplanar chemical vapor deposition diamond detector fabricated using a metal-less graphitic ohmic contact. Ion implantation of 70 keV boron ions to a dose of 2x10(16) cm(-2) was performed through a patterned photoresist to produce a coplanar graphitic contact structure. The device photocurrent showed a fast response to pulsed x-ray irradiation, and showed no evidence of photocurrent persistence that is observed in devices fabricated using metal Schottky contacts. The graphite-contact device also showed no extrinsic photoconductivity when illuminated with white light.
