Adhesive strength is one of the most important properties of any coating, and which can be improved by preparing an interface layer with increased ion energy i.e., by applying high substrate bias voltage. However, the films prepared under high substrate bias may have inferior qualities compared to the films that are prepared without any substrate bias. Hence, an investigation has been carried out to study the effect of high substrate bias voltages on the morphological, microstructure, mechanical and tribological properties of diamond-like carbon films. To identify the distinctive effect of the substrate bias, the films are prepared by a single step process with different substrate bias voltages.
