The low frequency vibrational spectrum of cluster beam deposited carbon films was studied by Brillouin light scattering. In thin films the values of both bulk modulus and shear modulus has been estimated from the shifts of surface phonon peaks. The values found indicate a mainly sp2coordinated random network with low density. In thick films a bulk longitudinal phonon peak was detected in a spectral range compatible with the value of the index of refraction and of the elastic constants of thin films. High surface roughness, combined with a rather strong bulk central peak, prevented the observation of surface phonon features. © 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
