Abstract

The structure of amorphous hydrogenated carbon (a-C:H), prepared under certain conditions, is such that it is harder, denser and more resistant to chemical attack than any other solid hydrocarbon. This, coupled with its high infra-red transparency and the ability to control the as-deposited properties to suit specific requirements, has led to many applications.
