Wear and impact performance of DLC coatings using the NanoTriboTest and Micro-impact

In this new publication, Tomasz Liskiewicz and colleagues at the University of Leeds investigate how Si and W doping alters the mechanical properties of DLC coatings by performing reciprocating micro-scale sliding tests and micro-scale repetitive impact tests using the NanoTest Vantage system.
