Selective implantation of 140 keV Co ions into self-supporting diamond films converts the surface into a conductive region at which redox electron transfer and metal deposition have been accomplished. Simple masking allows precise definition of the area to be plated within the insulating diamond matrix. Formation and electrochemical characterization of a rotating disk electrode in this manner are demonstrated.
