Welcome to DLC Research Group


Since 1991, our group has developed world-wide core competencies in the area of synthesis and application of diamond-like carbon (DLC) films. Using various deposition methods from plasma assisted CVD, ion beam deposition, ion plating to filtered vacuum arc process, we span almost whole spectrum of this material.

As the fundamental issues, we are playing with

  • Characterization of DLC Films : Structure and Properties
  • Modification of DLC Films by Third Element Addition or Nano-scale Structu
