Amorphous silicon carbide films were obtained by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) technique using a gas mixture of silane, methane, and hydrogen with a high excitation frequency and a high hydrogen dilution ratio. The high temperature annealing behavior of the amorphous silicon carbide films was studied by annealing at 1373 K for 1 h in nitrogen atmosphere. A very thin Au film was deposited on part of the films to investigate the metal induced crystallization effect. Well aligned nanotubes were found on the silicon carbide films covered by a thin gold layer after the high temperature annealing by atomic force microscopy. Further study is necessary to identify the nature of the nanotubes and elucidate their growth mechanism.
