Fluorine addition to a-C (amorphous carbon) thin films offers many advantages and a deeply understanding of the properties of a-C: F thin films is necessary for applications like biomedical implants and biosensor devices. Fluorine doped diamond-like carbon (a-C:F) films with different fluorine content were fabricated on Si wafer by pulsed vacuum arc plasma deposition. Film composition and structure were characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Raman scattering spectroscopy. Surface morpholo…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
