                         deposition at low temperature (\∼100C). Raman spectra of 
                         DLC/MWCNT film have characteristics from both DLC and MWCNT. The 
                         optical bandgap energy decreases with the incorporation of 
                         nanotubes. Scanning electron microscopy images confirm the 
                         presence of the MWCNT within the DLC film, forming a large
