Abstract

Characteristics of laser-ablated carbon plasma and properties of diamond-like carbon film in KrF pulsed laser deposition were investigated using laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) and optical emission spectroscopy. Two-dimensional LIF images of C2 (Swan band, d3Πg - a 3Πu) and C3 (Comet Head System, A 1Πu-X 1 σg+) molecules were detected as a function of laser energy density by narrow band pass filters and an intensified CCD camera. C2 LIF intensity is found to be weaker in the central part of the plume than that at the periphery at incident energy greater than 6 J/cm2. It is conjectured that C2 molecules are dissociated by collision with energetic species in the central part of the ablation plume, and degrade the diamond-like property of deposited films.
