The electrical conductivity of diamond thin films produced by the hot-filament technique is found to increase when diborane is incorporated in the precursor gas mixture. The combination of well-defined bulk conductivity measurements with quantitative secondary-ion mass spectrometry and Raman spectroscopy shows that the conductivity increase is associated with atomic boron doping and rules out any significant role for a graphitic-type component.
