      Wear behaviour of carbon-containing tungsten coatings prepared by reactive magnetron sputtering 

      Rebholz, Claus; Schneider, J. M.; Leyland, A.; Matthews, A. (1999)
      W(1-x)C(x) coatings (with x being in the range of 0.05-0.19) were deposited by reactive magnetron sputtering on to AISI 316 stainless-steel substrates in order to study the influence of the carbon content on the tribological ...
