Chemical vapor deposition of diamond thin films on titanium silicon carbide
Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) has been the main method for synthesizing diamond thin films on hetero substrate materials since 1980s. It has been well acknowledged that both nucleation and growth of diamond on non-diamond ...
Improvement of Diamond-Like Carbon Adhesion on CoCrMo by Microdiamond and Nitrogen Incorporation for Wear Resistant Applications
Coating the joint surfaces with diamond like carbon (DLC) is a promising way to increase the service lifetime of hip joints made of CoCrMo alloy. DLC thin films have been attracted the most interest because of its extreme ...
Enhancing Diamond-Like Carbon Adhesion on AISI 316L Stainless Steel Using Chromium Nitride Interlayers
Energy losses in moving components due to high friction and wear are one of the biggest challenges faced by industries. AISI 316L stainless steel (SS) is one of the most widely used alloyed steel for moving parts in corrosive ...
Synthesis of Ag-DLC coatings for biomedical implants
The diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating has the potential to increase the lifetime of metal on polymer (MoP) type hip joints due to its good tribological and mechanical properties as well as excellent biocompatibility. ...
The Microstructure and Properties of Niobium-doped Diamond-like Carbon Thin films
Doping diamond-like carbon (DLC) thin films with metals is an excellent way to reduce stresses in DLC films and improve their adhesion to artificial hip joint biomaterials. This improvement would translate to improving the ...
