Dimension reduction is critical and challenging for new nano-electronic applications. Cathodic arc is a low temperature process used for the growth of carbon based nanocluster. Carbon nanoclusters with varying sp2/ sp3 are grown at low temperature under different process parameters includes: arc voltage, arc current, gases helium, nitrogen and hydrogen, temperature, deposition rate, deposition time and distance of substrate from source. Studied orphological and Raman based study of carbon nanoclusters grown under varying conditions, using continuous and pulsed arc systems. Reported morphological details of nanoclusters using SEM. The G peak and D peak of Raman responses along with other signatures proves Raman as probe for nanomaterial study. The nanocluster thin films morphology and quality are highly influenced by the type of arc and other process parameters.
