The sheet resistance (Rsk) underneath ohmic Au-electrodes on hydrogen-terminated surface-conductive diamond (001) surfaces was examined by a special current-voltage measurement. It has been found that Rsk is about ~ 200 times larger than the sheet resistance, Rsh, in the open areas without Au-electrodes. The specific contact resistance, RC, of ohmic Au-electrodes on H-terminated surface-conductive diamonds as determined by linear transmission line models must be corrected accordingly. As the results of this, RC is suggested to be of the order of 1 × 10− 3 – 1 × 10− 4 Ωcm2.
