Abstract

Nanocrystalline diamond (NCD) films are prepared from Ar-rich/N 2/CH 4 and Ar-rich/H 2/CH 4 mixtures by microwave plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition, and further treated by microwave hydrogen and oxygen plasma exposures separately to enhance the wetting property. The hydrogen plasma treatment has small effect on the surface roughness, while the oxygen plasma treatment forms fine protrusions on the film surface. Results show that the wettability of the hydrogen plasma treated NCD film is nearly constant or little improvement as the polar component of the apparent surface free energy is close to the as-deposit NCD film. In contrast, the wettability of the oxygen plasma treated NCD film is improved dramatically such that the contact angle is reduced from 92° and 4.7° to almost 0° for water and 1-bromonaphthalene, respectively, and the polar component increases significantly to 34 mJ/m 2. The low contact angle suggests that the film is considerably a cell adhesive friendly surface, which is essential in maintaining multicellular structure, and thus making it a favorable wetting surface for biological and biomedical applications.
