This booklet bargains with the deposition of a definite type of fabrics, particularly the diamond-like superhard fabrics, within the kind of skinny movies. ranging from options used to enhance the hardness of a fabric, it truly is proven that the intrinsic hardness is optimum for fabrics with low bond lengths, excessive coordination numbers, and coffee ionicities. it's extra proven that such diamond-like fabrics (e.g. diamond, cubic boron nitride, tetrahedrically bonded carbon nitride) are distinctive by means of numerous different certain and severe houses.

This potential consists of an attractive term --EAr - n and a repulsive term E R r - m : E(r) = E a r - m - EAr - n . 1) The lattice energy is given by the energy at the equilibrium distance Eo = E(ro); at ro, the force F(r) = E ' ( r ) vanishes: n --n F(ro) = E'(ro) = -m---Ei~rom + - - E A r o r0 = O. e. the curvature of the potential curve at r0: ~ = l F'(ro) = l E"(ro) =mn~-~3 . 4) ro The third derivative of E(r) describes the asymmetry of the potential curve: E"'(ro) = _ n m ( m + n + 3) E0 .

It is very interesting and of importance for the modeling of c-BN deposition that - in contrast to carbon (ta-C) - no stoichiometric amorphous sp 3 modification seems to exist for boron nitride. The variety of possible BN modification causes - as in the case of carbon - difficulties in the unequivocal identification of c-BN. These difficulties are aggravated by the fact that boron nitride is a binary compound, which means that the stoichiometry can vary. In addition there is - in contrast to diamond - the possibility of the incorporation of impurities 16.
