Abstract
The phenylcarbyne polymer possesses a diamond-like structure. Because of its special structure, this polymer can be converted into diamond-like carbon phases at atmospheric pressure by thennal decomposition. In this article, we report on the growth of hydrogenated amoiphous carbon films (a-C:H) films by pulsed laser (KrF excimer, λ =248 mn) ablation of a phenylcarbyne polymer target under vacuum. a-C:H films were deposited with various laser fluences and at different substrate temperatures. Chemical and siructural characteristics of these films were analysed using X-ray-excited Auger electron spectroscopy (XAES), photoelectron loss spectroscopy (PELS), and Ranian speciroscopy. It was found that the fourfold-coordinated component increases with laser fluence at 80°C or increases with temperature increasing from 25°C to 60°C at a fluence of 1 x 1O9cm2. When the deposition temperature is increased from 60°C to 200°C at a fluence of 1 x 109 W/cm2, the graphitic component increases. The variation in chemical structures of these films is explained in terms of the changes in the fraction of sp2-bonded clusters and changes in the termination of the gmphitic clusters and sp3-bonded networks by hydrogen in the a-C:H films.
