Abstract Diamond-like carbon (DLC) films were deposited in high vacuum conditions at room temperature, by ablating graphite targets with femtosecond laser pulses. The structure of the films deposited onto silicon substrates were characterized by Raman spectroscopy and X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy (XANES). Films exhibit unusual structure, Raman spectra showing the presence of nanocrystalline diamond in amorphous matrix. Plasma plume was imaged by a gated ICCD camera in the UV-Visible… CONTINUE READING
