Amorphous boron-carbon-nitrogen (BCN) powders were produced by mechanically milling a mixture of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) and graphite powders for 120 h in an argon atmosphere. By annealing the amorphous BCN powders isothermally under 4 GPa at temperatures above 880 K, a new B–C–N crystal with a tetragonal structure was obtained. Its lattice constants decrease with the increasing annealing temperature and are a=1.685 nm and c=0.537 nm, respectively at an annealing temperature of 1170 K. The conductivity measurement suggests the new B–C–N phase is a semiconductor with a very small band gap and the band gap changes depending on the temperature in the temperatures between room temperature and 840 K. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
