Polymer Thin Films Prepared by RF Magnetron Sputtering of PTFE on NiTi Alloys
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.
