The microstructure, electronic structure and chemical bonding of chromium carbide thin films with different carbon contents have been investigated with high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, electron energy loss spectroscopy and soft x-ray absorption–emission spectroscopies. Most of the films can be described as amorphous nanocomposites with non-crystalline CrCx in an amorphous carbon matrix. At high carbon contents, graphene-like structures are formed in the amorphous carbon matrix… 

Crystallization characteristics and chemical bonding properties of nickel carbide thin film nanocomposites

The crystal structure and chemical bonding of magnetron-sputtering deposited nickel carbide Ni₁-xCx thin films have been investigated and it is shown that the resistivity is not only governed by the amount of carbon, but increases by more than a factor of two when the samples transform from crystalline to amorphous.
