Diamond Like Carbon (DLC)

Diamond Like Carbon is an amorphous form of carbon which has a high composition of sp3 bonds compared to sp2.  This gives it some characteristics similar to diamond such as hardness making it very useful for anti wear coatings. It's high breakdown voltage make it suitable for smoe forms of Power Device. It is deposited using a Reactive Ion Etch (RIE) system or etched in the same tool with a different process.
