Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) films, characterized by properties, such as high hardness and good wear resistance, have found many applications in various industrial sectors.
During the talk, we shall provide background information concerning DLC, what is the concept behind this material and how it can be fabricated. Additionally, we shall show the importance of process designing when fabricating DLC films, by analyzing them as a function of processes conditions.
