    Abstract:

    Diamond-like coatings, or DLCs, are a class of materials comprised primarily of amorphous and nano-crystalline carbon. DLCs offer a unique range of properties, many of which are tunable, that can improve the performance of current technology as well as offer novel engineered systems not previously possible. A few of the superior properties of DLCs are high wear resistance, high hardness, extreme thermal conductivity, excellent chemical resistance, high resistivity, and high optical transmision[1]. Not only are these properties superior to previous materials, they can be enhanced for specific applications by adjusting the parameters during the deposition. The methods of producing DLCs are myriad[2]; they include ion beam deposition, radio frequency plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (r.f.-PECVD), filtered cathodic vacuum arc (FCVA), ion plating, plasma immersion ion implantation and deposition (PIIID), ion beam sputtering, pulsed laser deposition, DC magnetron sputtering[3], and laser sintering[4] among others. Each technique offers specific advantages or enhancement of certain of the noted properties. Many of these techniques are currently used in an industrial capacity already, this makes future implementation easier. This paper will describe the structural characteristics of typical DLC systems, synthesis of the coatings and their applications
