Paper Title:
Morphology of Fibroblastic Cells Cultured on Diamond-Like Carbon Coatings Produced by Plasma Immersion Using AFM and SEM
  Abstract

For the potential use of diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating for biomedical applications, it would be important to evaluate the biological effects of these coatings. In this study, DLC coatings were deposited on glass coverslips using the plasma immersion process, which produces films with adhesion properties superior to those prepared with conventional techniques. Scanning electron microscopic and atomic force microscopic observations were used to study the morphology of fibroblasts growth on DLC coatings.
