The role of the plasma-grown nanoparticles in the plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) of the nanostructured carbon-based films was investigated. The samples were grown in the low-pressure rf plasmas of CH 4+H2+Ar gas mixtures. The enhanced deposition of the building units from the gas phase was found to support the formation of polymorphous nanostructured carbon films. The results reveal the crucial role played by the thermophoretic force in controlling the deposition of the plasma-grown fine particles.

30 citations in Web of Science®

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
