Paper Abstract

Amorphous conducting carbon films are prepared using plasma assisted polymerization process. SEM and TEM shows random aggregate of globular clusters of micron size inside the samples. Electrical measurements indicate a near metallic nature. A tendency of saturation of resistivity at low temperature is observed. From spectroscopic analysis we find some unusual features. Based on these observations a structural model of this carbon is proposed.
