Crystalline carbon nitride thin films were deposited by Arc evaporation process. The room temperature deposited films showed amorphous and polycrystalline phases whereas, the films were crystalline, when deposited at 300 °C. These films were nano-crystalline and had grain sizes varying from 5 to 30 nm depending on the deposition condition. The average C : N at.% ratio for films deposited at 300 °C substrate temperature was found as C : N :: 39.37 : 59.87. The microhardness of the deposited films were in the range of 2200Hv.015 to 1800Hv.015.
