                         diamond-like carbon (DLC) films in order to prevent CD-DLC 
                         electrochemical corrosion. In this paper, the influence of the 
                         diamond particle sizes on the electrochemical corrosion resistance 
                         of CD-DLC films was investigated. The films were grown over 304 
                         stainless steel using plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition. 
                         CD particles with 4 nm, 250 nm, 500 nm and 2-3 mu m in diameter 
                         were incorporated into DLC during the deposition process. The 
                         investigation of CD-DLC electrochemical corrosion behavior was 
                         performed using potentiodynamic method. The results show that both 
                         protection efficiency and impedance increase with the decrease of 
                         I-D/I-G ratio. It means the increase of sp(3) bonds in DLC films 
                         reduces its electrochemical corrosion, improving the 
                         electrochemical protection efficiency and the impedance. Our 
                         results pointed out that CD-DLC films are promising corrosion 
                         protective coatings in aggressive solutions.",
