The thermal conductivities of 99.95%12C and natural diamond films at temperatures from 1.5 to 300 K were studied. The thermal conductivity was measured by a steady heat-flow method. The thermal conductivity of 12C enriched diamond was increased compared to that of natural isotope abundant diamond. Its maximum value was about 1.4 times higher than that of the natural isotope-abundant diamond at around 180 K. The increase in thermal conductivity for the isotope diamond can be explained by Callaway's model, that is, by lowering the isotope-scattering effect.
