Crystalline nickel and copper possess bcc lattices, the parameters of which are 1.2 and 1.35% smaller than that of diamond. Heteroepitaxial Ni and Cu films have been grown by magnetron sputtering on polished and then thermally annealed and etched {100} and {110} surfaces of natural diamond. The films exhibit island morphology and possess a highly perfect crystalline structure.
