We report a low-energy electron irradiation method to nanocrystallize  the top-surface of amorphouscarbon film in electron cyclotron resonance  plasma system. The nanostructure evolution of the carbonfilm as a  function of electron irradiation density and time was examined by  transmission electron micro-scope (TEM) and Raman spectroscopy. The  results showed that the electron irradiation gave rise to theformation  of sp2nanocrystallites in the film top-surface within 4 nm thickness.  The formation of sp2nanocrystallite was ascribed to the inelastic  electron scattering in the top-surface of carbon film. Thefrictional  property of low-energy electron irradiated film was measured by a  pin-on-disk tribometer.The sp2nanocrystallized top-surface induced a  lower friction coefficient than that of the original pureamorphous film.  This method enables a convenient nanocrystallization of amorphous surface.
