The role of neutral radicals and charged ions in a low-pressure limit of plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition was studied using plasma diagonistics method. The fluxes of atomic hydrogen, methyl radicals, and ionic species were determined by optical absorption spectroscopy and mass spectroscopy. The ion-bombardment energy was estimated by measuring plasma potentials and ion energy distributions. The results show that the nucleation and the growth are limited by radical fluxes and modified to a degree by dynamic effects of energetic ions.
