Amorphous carbon is used as coating material for computer hard-disks magnetic media and recording heads. There has been significant improvement in understanding amorphous carbon's properties based on experimental observations. High data storage density requirement in the coming years necessitates the use of an ultrathin carbon overcoat while maintaining or enhancing its tribological, thermal, optical, and corrosion properties for better recording performance and reliability.
