We have developed a new method for fabricating all-diamond microelectrodes. The process comprises three steps: masking the tip of an electrode by electroplating with chromium, depositing undoped diamond, which acts as an insulator on the sides of the electrode, and removing the chromium mask to expose the tip of the electrode. The active area of the electrode can be easily controlled in combination only with a conventional electroplating technique.
