Abstract

We present a near edge x-ray absorption fine structure study of artificial chemical vapor deposition diamonds with sizes in the micron range and of size distributed nanodiamonds extracted from the Murchison meteorite. The modified peak shape in the case of the nanodiamond sample is explained by the interplay between the size distribution of the nanodiamonds and quantum confinement effects within a quantitative analysis based on the effective mass approximation theory.
