Abstract : Through the past five years, Honeywell has been involved in research to study the preparation and properties of carbon thin films that have been described as having diamond-like properties. The bulk of this work has been published in the open literature. The titles and abstracts of these papers are listed below. Following that are several figures of viewgraphs presented at the workshop with figure captions. These are intended to be self explanatory and to summarize the bulk of the work done to date. Future research should be directed towards fundamental studies of the nucleation and growth of these carbon films. Practical applications are presently limited by the poor adhesion to some substrate materials (e.g., alkali halides) and the large compressive stresses that these films possess.
