Diamond infrared emission bands in circumstellar media.


Abstract (from CDS):

Since the discovery of small diamond grains in meteorites, the presence of such grains in the interstellar medium has been suspected. Here we report what we think to be the first unambiguous evidence of the presence of small crystallites of diamond in the dusty envelopes surrounding stars. Thanks to experimental results obtained in different laboratories on the diamond growth process, we identify two peculiar unidentified infrared emission bands at 3.43 and 3.53 µm as the vibrational modes of hydrogen-terminated crystalline facets of diamond. The intensities of these two strong features observed in the envelope of HD 97048 correspond to a mass of 10–10 to 10–9 M of diamond dust at an equilibrium temperature of ∼1000 K.
