Abstract : The experimental apparatus for the vapor deposition of carbon on diamond seed crystals has been constructed, leak tested, and the flow systems calibrated. Initial deposition of carbon, not on diamond substrates, has been accomplished. The computer programming for solution of the equilibrium compositions in high temperature hydrocarbon systems has been completed. The relative flow rates of H2 and CH4 to obtain low carbon supersaturations have been computed for several experimental regimes of interest. (Author)
