Synthetic diamond has potential as a heat spreading material due to its uniquely high thermal conductivity. In small-scale devices, interfaces can dominate the resistance to heat transport, and thus play an important role in determining device performance. Here we use transient thermoreflectance techniques to measure the thermal interface conductance at metal-diamond interfaces. We study single crystal diamond samples with various surface terminations. We measure thermal interface conductance values over a range of temperatures from 88 K to 300 K, and find roughly 60 percent higher thermal interface conductance between Al and oxygenated diamond samples as compared to hydrogen terminated samples. The results reported here will be useful for device design and for advancing models of interfacial heat transport.
