Résumé : Nitrogen-rich carbon nitride films were prepared by three different deposition methods on fused silica, stainless steel and silicon cantilever substrates. Their optical properties were studied by spectroscopic ellipsometry and UV spectrometry. Mechanical properties such as plastic and Vickers microhardness, Young's modulus, adhesion and film stress were also tested. The results were compared with the properties of films with lower nitrogen concentrations.
