Paper Abstract

Diamondlike a-C:H films have been deposited by decomposition of acetylene. By the combination of Brillouin scattering and the ultralow load indentation technique, the following mechanical properties of the films were studied: the microhardness, H, the Young's modulus, E, the shear modulus, Ii , and the Poisson's ratio, v. From the measured data of mass density, hydrogen concentration and the ratio of sp3/sp2 bonds the f illing factors of these films were calculated. The results show that the hardness,Young's modulus and shear modulus of these films depend stongly on the volume concentration of voids and are directly proportional to the filling factor.
