Paper Abstract

Thin amorphous C-N films were deposited on <100> Si and KBr substrates at room temperature by XeCl laser ablation of graphite in low pressure (0.01 - 2.5 mbar) nitrogen atmosphere. Laser fluences were 3, 6, and 12 J/cm2. Scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersion spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction spectroscopy, Rutherford backscattering spectrometry, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy were used to characterize the deposited films, which result homogeneous, hard, amorphous and present a high electrical resistivity. The deposition rate decreases with increasing ambient pressure. The N/C atomic ratio into the deposited films generally increases with increasing ambient pressure and laser fluence. N/C values up to 0.5 were measured. Heating of the substrates during film deposition causes a reduction of the N/C ratio.
