AbstractThe diamond-like carbon (DLC) films deposited on the articulating surface of medical-grade Ti and Ti -6Al -4V were characterized. The DLC films were synthesized by r.f. plasma assisted chemical vapor deposition (PACVD) using C 6 H 6 at 10 mTorr. For wear tests, the ball-ondisk type wear tester was employed by wearing a 5-mm diameter ruby ball against a rotating metal disk. The DLC coating dramatically improved the wear performance of Ti and Ti -6Al -4V, and protected the substrates from corrosion. The…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
