Carbon nanotube (CNT) arrays have been directly synthesized on plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposited diamond films in the same growth chamber. The diamond films were grown using a bias-enhanced nucleation technique that produces relatively smooth and flat films. The thermal resistances of the CNT array/diamond film interface were measured using a photoacoustic technique to be approximately 12 mm2·K/W at moderate pressures.
