The temprature-dependence of carbon film growth by electrolysis of a methanol solution was discussed. The samples were deposited at different tempratures and analyzed using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM). The properties of the film such as high hardness, low friction coefficient, chemical inertness and optical transparency made the film suitable for practical applications.
