In this paper we will report the results obtained by femtosecond Pulsed Laser Deposition on vanadium carbide. These results, compared with those obtained for another group 5 carbide, tantalum carbide, evidence large analogies between the two systems. Optical emission spectroscopy shows in both cases the presence of particles in the secondary plume and in both cases the films are formed by nanoparticles and present a stoichiometry corresponding to the hemicarbide. ?? 2008 Elsevier B.V.
