Charge transport in diamond is studied using the Monte Carlo method, in which the scattering of electrons by phonons is considered stochastically. It is assumed that electrons are injected into the diamond conduction band with an initial equilibrium energy distribution and they are then accelerated by the internal field subject to phonon scattering. It is found that the electron energy distribution is independent of the field up to ≂0.1 V/μm. For larger fields, ‘‘hot’’ electron transport is predicted, i.e., the distribution shows a tail which depends on the internal field and the thickness of the diamond film. It implies that if electron field emission is from the conduction band in a diamond film, the transport and the energy spectrum of the emitted electrons should exhibit hot electron features. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.
