The results of complementary inelastic neutron scattering and infrared spectroscopy studies on the structure of amorphous hydrogenated carbon (a-C:H) as a function of temperature are presented, up to a maximum temperature of 1000 degrees C. These complementary data show that changes in the network structure occur on heating to only 200 degrees C, with the amorphous network becoming progressively aromatic even before significant hydrogen loss occurs at temperatures above 400 degrees C. Reference is also made to earlier, diffraction-based studies of the effects of heating a-C:H).
