Amorphous carbon nitride thin films have been grown by plasma decomposition of a feedstock of CH4 and N2. In the films with higher nitrogen concentration, the infrared absorption spectra are dominated by NH2 modes and give strong evidence of a polymeric structure. The optical absorption and photoluminescence spectra show that nitrogen incorporation decreases the bandgap and increases the structural order of these thin films.
