Whereas energetic ion beams are conventionally produced by extracting ions (say, positive ions) from a plasma that is held at high (positive) potential, with ion energy determined by the potential drop through which the ions fall in the beam formation electrode system, in the device described here the plasma and its electronics are held at ground potential(More)
We have explored the effects of atmospheric environment on Kelvin force microscopy (KFM) measurements of potential difference between different regions of test polycrystalline diamond surfaces. The diamond films were deposited by microwave plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition, which naturally produces hydrogen terminations on the surface of the films(More)
Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell cultures were grown on surfaces lithographed with periodic 3D hexagonal microcavity array morphology. The range of microcavity size (inscribed circle diameter) was from 12 μm to 560 μm. CHO cells were grown also on flat surfaces. The characterization was performed with respect to cell growth density (number of nuclei per(More)
We describe an approach to ion implantation in which the plasma and its electronics are held at ground potential and the ion beam is injected into a space held at high negative potential, allowing considerable savings both economically and technologically. We used an "inverted ion implanter" of this kind to carry out implantation of gold into alumina, with(More)
We describe the design and implementation of a high voltage pulse power supply (pulser) that supports the operation of a repetitively pulsed filtered vacuum arc plasma deposition facility in plasma immersion ion implantation and deposition (Mepiiid) mode. Negative pulses (micropulses) of up to 20 kV in magnitude and 20 A peak current are provided in gated(More)
