Abstract

Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings have low friction and high wear resistance compared to bulk materials and to other wear-resistant coated surfaces. The surrounding environment, gas atmosphere, humidity and temperature, affect the friction and wear performance of DLC films dramatically. In dry and inert atmospheres, the highly hydrogenated DLC films typically exhibit low friction performance, but the hydrogen-free DLC films have high friction accompanied with increased wear.
