Abstract

Amorphous carbon coatings for implantable medical devices require high mechanical strength, adhesion and uniform biocompatibility response across the devices. Investigation of a-C:H properties and structure variation with thickness and substrate material provides valuable insightinto requirements for device coating. A number of devices are coated and the effect of interfaciallayers, film doping and the spatial variation in quality is investigated.
