Dielectric-barrier discharge plasma source and its application to synthesis of diamond like carbon films

  • Xinpeng Wang (a1), Xiaoliang Tang (a2) and Peter Xianping Feng (a3)

Dielectric barrier discharge plasma sources have been studied and used for syntheses of diamond like carbon thin films. The plasma electrical properties under different gases concentrations and pressures were diagnosed. Based on the results of characterizations, dielectric barrier discharge plasma at different methane-hydrogen-argon gas ratios was used to synthesize large area of diamond like carbon films. Experimental data indicate that only at argon concentration equal to or less than 75% diamond like carbon film fabrication could be accomplished, which has been confirmed based on the Raman spectra and their hardness measurements, whereas high argon content during deposition would result in graphite type of thin films.
