Abstract: Amorphous hydrogenated carbon films (a-C:H) are very interesting materials for optical applications. They are transparent in the near IR part of the spectrum and its refractive index and absorption coefficient may be changed with the deposition parameters. In this paper we measure the optical constants of a-C:H films, deposited by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition as a function of the radio frequency power. The measurements were performed by the method of Abeles in lambda = 633 nm and by the approximation of Lambert-Beer in the transmission measurements using a spectrophotometer. Both methods do not require the use of thick films that are difficult to deposit due to the intrinsic stress of these films. The measurements were compared with that obtained by the fringe peaks in transmission measurements of a thick film. Our results showed that it is possible, in our system, to deposit homogeneous and uniform films with any refractive index chosen between 1.8 and 2.2 at lambda = 633 nm. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
