Films of MoS2 have been successfully deposited on 440C stainless steel using an excimer laser. A comparison was made of films ablated with the laser operating at 193 nm and at 248 nm. The effects of substrate temperature were also studied. X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) measurements indicated that the films were sulphur rich as compared to single crystal MoS2. Laser Raman measurements indicated that annealing was necessary to obtain crystalline films. All films exhibited coefficients of friction in the neighborhood of 0.03 in a dry nitrogen environment. Coefficients of friction in laboratory air were significantly higher.
