In this project, we have performed the comprehensive studies, including generation, diagnosis, and application, in order to establish the materials science of supercritical fluid plasmas, especially supercritical cluster fluid plasmas, close to critical point. Diamond molecules and their chemical reactions have been adopted as their standard materials and reactions. The main achievements are listed as follows: (A) Generation : Various supercritical plasmas, such as pulsed laser ablated plasma, dielectric barrier discharge plasma, and nanosecond pulsed discharge plasma, have been developed. (B) Various diagnostic methods, such as optical emission spectroscopy and V-I method, have been performed. New theoretical analysis has been also proposed. (C) Applicaion : Artificial synthesis of diamondoids (diamond molecule) have been synthesized. Experimental and theoretical study of synthesis mechanism (high quenching rate process, sequential reaction process) have also been carried out.
