Ion Beam Assisted Method of Producing a Diamond-Like Carbon Coating

Abstract: 

The present invention relates to an ion beam assisted method of producing a diamond like carbon (DLC) coating on the surface of a material. More particular, the invention relates to an ion beam assisted method using a fullerene precursor to produce a DLC coating, wherein the chemical composition of the ion beam and precursor are selectively chosen to determine the physical properties of the DLC coating.
