The properties of carbon films on metallic surfaces at 77 K, which is approximately the FTU (Frascati Tokamak Upgrade) wall temperature, have been studied for the first time. Very good results up to a maximum film thickness of 3 μm have been obtained. Evidence of blistering on the sample surface appeared only when the current density, during carbonization, exceeded considerably the value of 15 μA/cm2. © 1992 Elsevier Science Publishers B.V.
