Latest Amorphous carbon Stories
A new form of very hard carbon clusters capable of indenting diamond has been observed by a team of Carnegie Institution for Science researchers.
An amorphous diamond – one that lacks the crystalline structure of diamond, but is every bit as hard – has been created by a Stanford-led team of researchers.
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Novellus Systems (Nasdaq: NVLS) has developed a suite of ashable hardmask (AHM) films that have up to 25 percent greater etch selectivity compared to similar amorphous carbon films in use by the industry today.
A great deal of work has been done into understanding the physical properties of amorphous carbon (a-C). These studies have found the relative ratio of different carbon phases strongly determines the physical properties of the material.
