Low-pressure glow discharges are widely used for material surface processing, such as etching, deposition of thin films, or modifications of surface properties.

In the field of diamond film synthesis using plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) systems, attention should be paid to the absolute density of key species.

The Handbook of Thin Films Materials is a comprehensive reference focusing on processing techniques, characterization methods, and physical properties of these thin film materials.

Researchers in materials, physics and mechanical engineering will find this book a timely review of a rapidly advancing field and it will provide practicing engineers in the elctronics and manufacturing industries with a valuable overview of thin film diamond for years to come.

Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is a vacuum deposition method used to produce high quality, high-performance, solid materials. The process is often used in the semiconductor industry to produce thin films. In typical CVD, the wafer (substrate) is exposed to one or more volatile precursors, which react and/or decompose on the substrate surface to produce the desired deposit.

Keywords. Helium-Atom-Streuung crystal mechanical properties. A thin film is a layer of material ranging from fractions of a nanometer to several micrometers in thickness.

The controlled synthesis of materials as thin films (a process referred to as deposition) is a fundamental step in many applications. A familiar example is the household mirror, which typically has a thin metal coating on the back of a sheet of glass to form a reflective interface.

Diamond-like films are already employed in both commercial and military applications. The popular press, as well as the scientific and technological and industrial communities, are increasingly interested in the potential for future development of these materials.
