The sputtering of tungsten by carbon is investigated experimentally and by computer simulation. The erosion and deposition are studied as a function of the fluence of the incident carbon at 1 and 6 keV and for different angles of incidence. Both experimental data and computer simulation show a transition from net carbon deposition to net erosion as the angle of incidence exceeds values of 40 .
