This work presents the development and implementation of a Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) reactor. The reactor construction was made from the design of each subsystem: vacuum generation stage, power supply to the discharge, ion extraction stage, gas system and heating of the substrates. The power applied to generate the discharge, essential for this type of reactor, was obtained from a microwave oven in which the magnetron is coupled to a waveguide and a resonant cavity. Some preliminary results, with the implemented reactor, were reported, which essentially consists in DLC coatings (Diamond Like Carbon) on polished silicon substrates. The coatings were characterized by atomic force microscopy-AFM and Raman spectroscopy. The results show that it is possible to obtain various amorphous molecular carbon forms. For this reason, the implementation of an inexpensive PECVD reactor is an alternative in developing research of new materials.
