Title: Formation of carbon nitride with sp{sup 3}-bonded carbon in CN{sub x}/ZrN superlattice coatings

Abstract

A carbon nitride phase with primarily sp{sup 3}-bonded carbon is stabilized in CN{sub x}/ZrN superlattice coatings. Rutherford backscattering spectrometry measurements give a N/C atomic ratio {approx}1.3 for the CN{sub x} layers. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy and Z-contrast imaging from the superlattice show a well-defined layer structure. Raman and near-edge x-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy results reveal the formation of sp{sup 3}-bonded carbon atoms in short-period CN{sub x}/ZrN superlattices.
