Homoepitaxial diamond films were grown by chemical vapor deposition using ultrahigh vacuum (UHV)-compatible deposition systems. Optimized growth conditions with oxygen added to the source gas enabled long-duration homoepitaxial diamond growth without formation of non-epitaxial crystallites. Under these conditions, unintentionally incorporated nitrogen was suppressed well below 1011 cm-3. By adding silicon or boron during growth with their ratio to carbon of below 1 ppb, formation of single SiV color center in homoepitaxial diamond and deposition of lightly doped p-layer was achieved with the concentration of 1015 cm-3.
