A detailed examination of the intrinsic stress development within and mechanical properties of Ti containing hydrocarbon (TiC:H) coatings deposited in an inductively coupled plasma assisted hybrid chemical vapor deposition/physical vapor deposition environment has been carried out, combining in situ substrate curvature measurements with plasma probe measurements, ex situ electrical resistivity measurements, and instrumented nanoindentation measurements. Intrinsic stresses within TiC:H have been found to be compressive over wide ranging compositions and plasma parameters. The intrinsic compression within TiC:H was found to depend significantly on the Ti composition, and was related to a percolation type transition in the nanoscale structure. The intrinsic compression within TiC:H has further been shown to be significantly influenced by the energy of ionic species bombarding the substrate during growth. Measured stress–thickness history was discussed in terms of possible mechanisms contributing to intrinsic stress generation. Although there are likely multiple mechanisms influencing intrinsic stress development, our present results suggest that ion bombardment plays a significant role in intrinsic stress generation within TiC:H, and is likely to influence stress development in other low temperature deposited amorphous hydrocarbon based ceramic nanocomposite coatings. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
