Carbon Nitride and Its Synthesis

John Kouvetakis (Inventor)

Research output: Patent

Abstract

Carbon Nitride, C3N4, is a highly sought after material because it exhibits a hardness equivalent to Boron Nitride and exceeds that of diamond. Therefore, its potential applications would be the same as those of actual and synthetic diamonds at a much lower cost. Researchers at Arizona State University have developed the capability of depositing thin films of C3N4. The films produced by this method were characterized by IR spectroscopy and Rutherford Backscattering. This discovery is an important step toward the synthesis of crystalline C3N4. Its structure has been elucidated and has been described in a United States patent application on which a notice of allowance has been received.
