Abstract

The article presents the study of carbon particles embedded diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings deposited at a range of temperatures. The isolated carbon particles are in-situ created, concurrently with the DLC deposition by rapid plasma quenching and embedded at controlled depth in DLC matrix. The specimens are deposited without any heating, 100°C, 200°C, and 300°C substrate temperature. From prior studies, the isolated carbon particles embedded DLC coatings deposited without any heating has demonstrated a 21% increase in hardness with 60% decrease in wear rate. In this paper, the effect of temperature on the mechanical properties and wear performance carbon particles embedded DLC coatings will be discussed.
