Abstract. This paper presents the results of diamond-like carbon coatings deposited using the physical vapor deposition PVD process on 4H13 stainless steel samples. The properties were assessed by analyzing the coating microstructure, nanohardness, roughness and tribological tests. The results obtained during the tests which were carried out showed that the application of diamond coatings considerably improves tribological properties. In addition, coatings, which are desirable in sliding friction pairs, are free of pores and microcracks.
