Diamond, the cubic phase of carbon, has been manufactured synthetically as a thin films at temperature below 1000 °C and atpresure below one atmosphere. Theoretical morphology of the crystals were calculated by different methods. The study of growth morphology was made by scanning electron microscopy and X-Ray texture camera. Twinned crystals with spinel law and single crystals were unambiguosly detected by using both techniques, as well as the crystal orientation along {111} of the film.
