Depositing Thin Films onto Plastic Substrates


Following on from a previous video Dr Charlie Dunnill explains how the use of an argon plasma allows the chemical vapour deposition process to be used to deposit thin films onto plastic substrates at room temperature to make functional surfaces on things that cannot withstand the usual high temperatures associated with CVD thin films.
