Title Diamon-like carbon coatings with Ca-O-incorporation for improved biological acceptance
Date 28.10.2002
Number 10850
Abstract Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings were modified by doping the thin films with Ca-O compounds. Raman spectroscopy indicates growth of sp2-hybridised, ordered regions in size and/or number within the amorphous carbon-hydrogen network as a result of the Ca-O-incorporation. CaCO3 was identified by X-ray induced photoelectron spectroscopy. Proliferation and morphology of L929 mouse fibroblasts reveal improved biocompatibility of Ca-O-modified DLC.
