The semiconductor materials with values of energy band gap in the range of 1-2 eV are the most suitable for manufacturing solar cells. These objects include some of the carbon allotropic modifications, as well as quantum dots on the surface of these materials, which use as the basis for the creation of new optoelectronic devices based on nanostructures. This paper presents the investigations of optical properties and structure of synthesized multilayer system diamond-like carbon film/ carbon quantum dots/C60film (DLC/Qdots/C60).
