In the present study, the effect of indirect laser texturing on the tribological performance of diamond like carbon coatings has been investigated. Micro dimples were created before DLC coating was deposited. Dimple diameters were changed while keeping density and depth constant, in order to study the effect of change in dimension on the coating performance. The results indicate that optimum surface texturing parameters reduces the friction and wear at the contact. Dimple diameter of 100 ┬Ám increased the wear resistance of DLC by lowering the wear particle induced graphitization.
