Plasma and ion beam enhanced chemical vapour deposition of diamond and diamond-like carbon
WC-Co cutting tools are widely used in the machining industry. The application of diamond coatings on the surfaces of the tools would prolong the cutting lifetime and improves the manufacturing efficiency. However, direct ...
Synthesis and characterization of diamond-like carbon and DLC-MoS2 composite thin films
In order to obtain diamond-like carbon (DLC) thin films with improved mechanical, tribological, thermal and corrosion properties for practical applications, the structure and properties of various DLC thin films including ...
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 ...
