Epub 2015 Dec 8.Hydrogel coatings were stabilized by titanium carbonitride a-C:H:Ti:N buffer layers deposited directly onto the polyurethane (PU) substrate beneath a final hydrogel coating. Coatings of a-C:H:Ti:N were deposited using a hybrid method of pulsed laser deposition (PLD) and magnetron sputtering (MS) under high vacuum conditions. The influence of the buffer a-C:H:Ti:N layer on the hydrogel coating was analysed by means of a multi-scale microstructure study. Read More
