DLC Standardization

DLC standardization activities

JNDF has been carrying out a project for the standardization of DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) commissioned by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan (METI). The purposes of this project are as following.

  • (1) The classification of DLC is determined; a draft ISO standard concerning the classification of DLC is proposed.
  • (2) A simple evaluation method for DLC which is based on its optical properties is developed; a draft ISO standard concerning the evaluation method for the optical properties of DLC is proposed.
  • (3) A draft ISO standard concerning the determination of friction and wear of DLC is proposed.
  • (4) Databases for the biocompatibility of amorphous carbon films containing DLC are made; the framework of ISO standard related to the assessment of the biocompatibility of DLC is created.

 

The project has been run by the DLC standardization committee organized in JNDF under the leadership of the project leader. The members of the DLC standardization committee and the implementation structure of the project are as follows.

(1) Project leader
