We describe a technique to improve diamond cutting tools used in nanometer- and micrometer-scale machining and formed via focused-ion-beam (FIB) micromachining. Although FIB irradiation is an effective means of fabricating arbitrary miniature shapes in diamond cutting tools, FIB irradiation induces a non-diamond phase, as well as Ga ion implantation, in the irradiated area. This adversely affects the performance of the ultra-precision machining process, especially in terms of tool life and the quality of the machined surface. To eliminate the affected layer, we applied heat-treatment techniques and investigated the optimum thermal profiles. A temperature of 500℃ applied to the cutting tool provided optimal machining of nickel phosphorus. The tool life was significantly improved, and a tool life similar to that of a non-irradiated diamond tool was obtained. The quality of the machined surface was also improved markedly owing to superior tool wear and adhesion resistance.
