Overview of Workshop

For last decades, diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating has been applied to wide range of industry from machining tools, data storage, automobile components to biomedical implants. Although this variety of application is based on the tunability of the DLC coating, it becomes important to establish the standard or classification of the DLC coating for the promotion of its industrial applications. Encouraged by the pioneering works in Germany and Japan, researchers from Germany, Japan and Korea agreed to organize this workshop during ICMCTF 2008.

The purpose of this workshop is to take the first step to global standard for both vendors and customers to be able to communicate in more effective way. This workshop will focus on the following issues.

  1. Review of the present status of DLC standardization in Germany and Japan
  2. Identification of the requirements from industry
  3. Identification of the key parameters for the classification of DLC coating
  4. Specification of the characterization tools for the classification of DLC coating
  5. Industrial guideline for the supply of DLC coating
