Description Microstructure and mechanical properties of thin Mo-B-C layers prepared by magnetron sputtering were studied by means of scanning and transmission electron microscopy and nanoindentation techniques. Depending on sputtering conditions the microstructure changes from amorphous to partly crystalline. No cracks were observed at the substrate-layer interface under indentation prints. The materials showed a promising combination of high hardness and elastic modulus together with high fracture toughness.
