Origin of the broadband luminescence and the effect of nitrogen doping on the optical properties of diamond films

This paper establishes the presence of in-gap state distribution in chemical-vapor-deposition (CVD) diamond films and suggest that it is likely cause of the broadband luminescence. It is crucial to electro-optic applications to have knowledge of the properties of this distribution since it can affect and determine the transport and recombination mechanisms of the carriers.
