    Diamond-like carbons (DLCs) display a number of attractive properties that make them versatile coating materials for a variety of applications, including extremely high hardness values, very low friction properties, very low gas permeability, good biocompatibility, and very high electrical resistivity, among others. Further research into this material is required to produce hydrogen-free DLC films and to synthesize it together with other materials, thereby obtaining better film properties. Diamond-Like Carbon Coatings: Technologies and Applications examines emerging manufacturing technologies for DLCs with the aim of improving their properties for use in practical applications.

    • Discusses DLC coatings used in mechanical, manufacturing, and medical applications
    • Details recent developments in the novel synthesis of DLC films
    • Covers advances in understanding of chemical, structural, physical, mechanical, and tribological properties for modern material processing
    • Highlights methods to yield longer service life
    • Considers prospects for future applications of emerging DLC technologies

    This work is aimed at materials science and engineering researchers, advanced students, and industry professionals.
