In this study, a DLC-based nanocomposite with TiC crystallites embedded in an amorphous matrix of Al-doped DLC has been developed. This novel coating has low residual stress, very high toughness, good thermal stability and excellent oxidation resistance while the hardness is maintained at an adequate level.
