In the novel diamond-like carbon polymer hybrid (DLC-p-h) coatings, the useful properties of diamond-like carbon (DLC) and a chosen polymer can be combined. So far two unique biomaterials, diamond-like carbon polytetrafluoroethylene hybrid (DLCPTFE-h) and diamond-like carbon polydimethylsiloxane hybrid (DLC-PDMS-h) with dirt-repelling hydrophobic and oleophobic properties have been developed. These novel coatings were studied in this thesis. The Diamond Group at the ORTON Research Institute… CONTINUE READING
