The relationship between metal-induced chemical bonding and the mechanical properties of Me/a:C-H (Me-Ti and Ni) films are discussed. Nanocomposite films were deposited onto the Si substrates via biased target ion beam sputtering of metal combined with reactive ion beam deposition of a:C-H using CH4/Ar gas mixture. The chemical composition, microstructure and mechanical properties were characterized using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Raman spectroscopy and nanoindentation. XPS...[Show more]
