A range of amorphous hydrogenated carbon (a-C:H) samples have been studied using inelastic neutron spectroscopy (INS) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. Using these complementary techniques, the bonding environments of both carbon and hydrogen can be probed in some detail, with the INS data providing not only qualitative but also quantitative information. By comparing the data from each of the samples we have been able to examine the effects of different deposition conditions, i.e. precursor gas, deposition energy and deposition method, on the atomic-scale structure of a-C:H.
