Abstract: High modulus carbon/epoxy composites have been attached more and more importance in the aeronautic field. Because chemical inert of high modulus carbon fiber surface and its poor impregnation for resin, it is essential to improve its polarity in order to enhance the interfacial performances of high modulus carbon/epoxy composites. In this paper, high modulus carbon fiber was treated by ozone oxidation method to modify its surfacial properties. AFM and SEM were used to observe the surface of the carbon fiber, as well as interlaminar shear strength of high modulus carbon fiber/epoxy composite was tested. The impregnation and the interfacial performances of the high modulus carbon/epoxy composites were studied. The results show that after ozone treatment, the surface impregnation of high modulus carbon fiber and the interlaminar shear strength property of high modulus carbon/epoxy composites can be improved obviously.

Abstract: In this paper, the TaCx coating with thickness around 1.2 μm was prepared by radio frequency magnetron sputtering technique on the 316L stainless steel substrate to improve its hemocompatibility. The structure and morphology of the coating were characterized by XRD and SEM. The XRD results indicated that TaCx, as a new species, appeared on the surface of the 316L stainless steel substrate. SEM images showed that the surface morphology of the TaCx coating was uniform and dense. The mechanical characteristics of the coating were measured by nanoindentation, giving a nanohardness of 13 GPa and a Young’s modulus of 210 GPa. The adhesion strength of the TaCx coating to 316L stainless steel depended on the sputtering bias voltages and increased for a higher bias voltage. The hemocompatibility of the TaCx coating, as evaluated by platelet adhesion tests, was compared to that of the bare 316L stainless steel. The results indicated that the hemocompatibility of 316L stainless steel with TaCx coating was significantly improved as compared to the original one.
