Films (with thicknesses about thousands A) of a new form of carbon allotrope, CIO also known as Fullerenes, are deposited on Si(111) substrates using ionized cluster beam deposition (ICBD) technique at low (65V) accelerating voltage V. X-ray &-20 diffraction (XRD) have been used to investigate the structural properties of C6Ofi lms, indicating hexagonal close-packed structure with strong (002) XRD assignment together with weak (100), (112) and(004) assignments. Raman spectra, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) are carried out to make detailed studies of the electronic properties of the films and to illustrate differences between CO films and amorphous carbon films which are deposited by ICBD at high accelerating voltage V >400V. Cio soccer-balls are found to be broken into fragments as accelerating field overtakes about 400V, indicated by the results of XPS, Raman spectra, XRD, and UV/visible absorption spectra.
