Abstract

Titanium and tantalum samples were treated by high voltage pulses at −20 kV in an atmosphere of methane. The high voltage created a plasma, from which ions of methane and its fragments were accelerated towards the sample and were implanted. Process times between 0.5 and 2 h at a pulse repetition rate of 1 kHz were used. The gas pressure was 1 Pa.

X-ray diffraction results from the near-surface region of the implanted sample showed small peaks of the carbide phases next to dominant peaks of the metal target. Secondary ion mass spectrometry and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy gave concentration versus depth profiles of the implanted carbon. The chemical shift proved that metal–carbon bonds had been formed. The profiles showed a thin carbon film on top, followed by a shallow implantation profile. The amount of implanted carbon increased with the process time.
