Significant improvement of adhesion between gold thin films and a polymer

Li, Wei; Charters, Robbie; Luther-Davies, Barry; Mar, L


A novel technique was demonstrated for realizing extremely strong adhesion between gold thin films and a polysiloxane based polymer. The surface of the polymer was modified by using a plasma treatment. The variation of the wettability and topography of the polymer surface with the plasma conditions were investigated through water contact angle measurement and scanning electron microscope observation, respectively. It was found that the polymer surface was roughened greatly, and its water...[Show more]
