Abstract
ONE OF THE MAJOR PROBLEMS PREVENTING THE WIDESPREAD USE OF HARD CARBON COATINGS FOR THEIR UNIQUE OPTICAL AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES IS THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE NOT HERETOFORE BEEN MADE THICKER THAN 1-2 MICROMETERS. SOME OF OUR RECENT RESEARCH RESULTS SUGGEST THAT STRESS- FREE CARBON COATINGS CAN INDEED BE PRODUCED UNDER UNUSUAL DEPOSITION CONDITIONS. WE WILL BUILD AN RF-POWDERED COATER AND INVESTIGATE WH\ETHER SUCH COATINGS CAN BE MADE THICKER BY TESTING RANGES OF DEPOSITION CONDITIONS NOT PREVIOUSLY TRIED. IN ADDITION, WE WILL CONTINUE OUR DEVELOPMENT OF SUCH COATINGS PRODUCED BY HIGH-VOLTAGE D.C. DISCHARGES AND DEPOSITION OF CARBON LAYERS DIRECTLY FROM INTENSE CARBON IN BEAMS.
