|Abstract||Hard amorphous hydrogenated carbon films deposited by self-bias glow discharge were implanted at room temperature with 70 keV-nitrogen ions at fluences between 2.0 and 9.0 x 10 16 N/cm2. The implantation energy was chosen so that the projected range plus range straggling (Rp+∆Rp) was smaller than the film thickness. The implanted samples were analyzed by Raman scattering, Secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) and positron annihilation spectroscopy, using the Doppler broadening technique with the determination of the shape parameter (S parameter). Depth profiles of implanted species agree well with the predictions of the Monte Carlo code, Transport of Ions in Matter (TRIM-90). For samples implanted with 2 x 1016 N/cm2 the S parameter follows the vacancies depth profile predicted by the simulation. For higher fluences we observed a reduction in the measured value of S. The first result was interpreted as being due to the point defects generated during the ion stopping, whereas the PAS results for higher fluences were due to the structural modifications (increase of disorder and of the number, or size, of the graphitic domains) induced in the carbon films by the incident ions combined with the point defects generated by the atomic collisions.
