Abstract Visible photoluminescence (PL) has been observed from the hydrogenated amorphous carbon (a-C:H) films prepared by ArF pulsed laser ablation of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) in the presence of hydrogen gas (H2). With increasing hydrogen concentration the PL intensity increases and the intensity maximum blue-shifted. The PL intensity also increases after hours of light illumination, exhibiting a light soaking enhancement. Increasing the deposition temperature decreases the PL and increases the ratio of sp3/sp2 bonds.
