The development and application of diamond-like carbon films

  • Ravi Jethanandani
Biomaterials Overview


A considerable amount of research has been conducted over the years on diamond-like carbon films. Due to its mechanical, optical, thermal, electrical, tribological, and biomedical properties, it has shown tremendous potential for use in military and commercial applications.
