|Abstract:||Zinc doped diamond-like carbon (DLC) nanocomposite thin films are fabricated by KrF pulsed laser deposition. Carbon targets containing 3.0, 5.0 and 10.0 atomic percentages of zinc are used as the source for the laser system. Investigation of electrical properties by the four-point probe shows that doping zinc into DLC can lower the electrical sheet resistivity. Microstructural analysis by Raman spectroscopy and XPS show a lower sp3 content but a higher SiC content with an increasing amount of zinc incorporation. The increase of SiC leads to an increase in adhesion strength. Surface roughness of the films also increases while the coefficients of friction for the films do not change. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
