Abstract
DIAMOND LIKE CARBON FILMS HAVE BEEN UNDER CONSIDERATION AS POTENTIALLY USEFUL MATERIALS FOR OPTICAL COMPONENTS. THIS PROPOSAL IDENTIFIES SEVERAL POSSIBLE WAYS TO IMPROVE THESE MATERIALS AND MAKE THEM MORE VERSATILE. THESE INCLUDEADDING SILICON TO PROVIDE AMORPHOUS SILICON CARBON COATINGS THROUGH CONTROLLED DEPOSITION AND ION IMPLANTATION. ALSO, HIGH EVERGY ION BEAM PROCESSING OF THESE FILMS IS PROPOSE AS A METHOD FOR IMPROVING THE BONDING OF THICK, DIAMONDLIKE CARBON FILMS ON OPTICAL COMPONENTS. THESE FILMS HAVE POTEN-TIAL FOR PROVDING TRANSPARENT, CORROSION, AND SCRATCH RESISTANT COATINGS FOR INFRARED OPTICALS. ELLIPSOMETRIC MEASUREMENTS OF OPTICAL CONSTANTS AT INFRARED WAVELENGTHS WILL PROVIDE AN ACCURATE AND UNIQUE CHARACTERIZATION.
