A high-intensity ion beam (500 keV, current density 60-200 A/cm 2, power density (0.25-1)·10 8 W/cm 2, pulse duration 60 ns, pulse repetition rate 4-6 min -1) was used to deposit thin metal and carbon films by evaporation of respective targets. The instantaneous deposition rate was 0.6-5 mm/s. The films were examined using transmission electron microscopy and transmission electron diffraction. The metal films had a polycrystalline structure with the grains measuring from 20 to 100 nm, the lower the melting point the greater the grain size. The carbon films contained 25-125 nm diamonds. The ablation plasma was studied employing methods of pulsed spectroscopy.
