Article Preview

Fluorocarbon polymer thin films on NiTi alloys possess extremely potential prospect. In this paper, the preparation of thin films on NiTi alloys by radio-frequency (RF) magnetron sputtering from polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) targets under argon is introduced. Sputtered fluorocarbon thin films on NiTi alloys are characterized by means of atomic force microscopy (AFM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) and their basic properties, especially structure and morphology, are revealed.
