Diamondlike flakesA carbon coating was vacuum arc deposited on a smooth surface of a target which was simultaneously ion beam sputtered. The bombarding ions have sufficient energy to create diamond bonds. Spalling occurs as the carbon deposit thickens. The resulting diamond like carbon flakes improve thermal, electrical, mechanical, and tribological properties when used in aerospace structures and components.
