Nanocrystalline diamond films with different size were characterized by ultraviolet (UV) (244 nm) Raman spectroscopy. It was found that a diamond peak at 1333 cm-1was enhanced, while the D and G peak of graphite as well as photoluminescence was suppressed, compared with that measured by visible (514.5 nm) Raman. With decreasing the particle size from 120 to 28 nm, the diamond peak shifts from 1332.8 to 1329.6 cm-1, the line width of the peak becomes broader, the intensity ratio of diamond and G peak decreases. The down shift and broadening of the diamond peak depending on the particle size by UV Raman measurements are consistent with the phonon confinement model.
