Carbon Black Deposition

Hello Friendly Labmembers,

I am interested in finding good materials for optical isolation, black 
polyimides, etc.  Anyway, I have had some problems finding black polyimides 
that I like and someone recommended that I use Carbon black.  I guess you 
deposit carbon black with some method, such as sputtering, onto a lift off 
mask?  Anyway, I don't know much about this process.  Does anyone know of 
carbon black deposition techniques that are readily available around the 
lab or nearby Stanford.  How do you pattern this stuff?

Thanks for your help!,
