Abstract
THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL INVESTIGATE THE DEPOSITION OF AMORPHOUS CARBON THIN FILMS USING A NOVEL LASER ASSISTED DEPOSITION TECHNIQUE. IN THE PHASE I RESEARCH, AERODGNE RESEARCH, INC. WILL DETERMINE THE ABILITY OF THE DEPOSITION TECHNIQUE TO CONTROL THE CARBON BONDING IN THE THIN FILM. IN THE PHASE II STUDIES THEY WILL INVESTIGATE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DEPOSITION PARAMETERS AND CARBON BONDING IN THE FILM AND THEIR EFFECTS ON THIN FILM PROPERTIES SUCH AS HARDNESS, CONDUCTIVITY, AND PHOTOCONDUCTIVITY. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT A MAJOR BENEFIT OF THE PROPOSED LASER ASSISTED DEPOSITION TECHNIQUE WILL BE IMPROVED PHOTOCONDUCTIVITY BROUGHT ABOUT BY INCREASED CONTROL OVER THE CARBON BONDING IN THE THIN FILM.
