"Here, we determine the oxygenation state of the (110) surface using a combination of density functional theory calculations and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy experiments. We report the fabrication of the highest-quality (100)-oriented diamond crystal surface to date. We further propose a mechanism for the formation of the hybrid carbonyl-ether phase and rationalize its high stability. "
