Plasma Coating and Surface Modification of Amorphous Carbon for Biomedical Applications

Abstract:

Article Preview

Amorphous carbon coatings for implantable medical devices require high mechanical strength, adhesion and uniform biocompatibility response across the devices. Investigation of a-C:H properties and structure variation with thickness and substrate material provides valuable insight into requirements for device coating. A number of devices are coated and the effect of interfacial layers, film doping and the spatial variation in quality is investigated.
