After a brief outline of the various techniques for carbon-based coatings i.e. DC-, RF- and microwave-driven plasma discharges-the growth mechanisms of polymer-like and diamond-like carbon (DLC) films, also known as amorphous carbon films, are discussed according to most recent experimental observations. Thereafter mechanical and optical properties of C-H films and resulting practical applications will be summarized.
