Paper Abstract

Silicon nitride films were synthesized in a Balzers BAP 800 coating plant by an plasma enhanced evaporation process. Transparent, stoichiometric films free of hydrogen, oxygen, argon, and heavy metals were obtained. The optical properties, the chemical composition, the microhardness, the structure, and the morphology of the films were investigated.
