Diamond-coated fibres and wires were produced by hot filament chemical vapour deposition (HFCVD) of diamond on a variety of core materials including tungsten (W) and silicon carbide (SIG). Fibres with a diamond volume fraction exceeding 95% have been produced. Three different methods of measuring the fibre Young's modulus (a resonance method, a bend test and a tensile test) are presented, together with recent results. Possible applications for such fibres include reinforcements in metal matrix composites (MMCs).
