Reflection electron microscopy (REM) and scanning tunneling microscopy have been applied to the estimation of the surface flatness of diamond (001) surfaces and to the 2 × 1 reconstructed structure. The macroscopic surface flatness observed by REM has been improved by using CO as a source gas and by boron-doping.
