P. // Journal of Applied Physics;12/1/2002, Vol. 92 Issue 11, p6572 

    In a structure zone model (SZM), the temperature and the sputtering gas pressure have been proposed as major factors explaining the structural properties of both evaporated and sputtered metals. Nevertheless, there is no evidence that such models can be applied to amorphous hydrogenated carbon...
