Description The thermomechanical stability of diamond-like protective (DLC) films play a crucial role for their technological application and its study is of great importance. The main disadvantages of amorphous hydrogenated carbon (a-C:H) films prepared using PECVD are their low thermomechanical stability (due to hydrogen loss and graphitization at temperatures exceeding 300 C). After achieving this temperature the thermal degradation process starts due to the graphitization caused by hydrogen losses.
