dc.description.abstract The wettability and surface energy of hydrogenated amorphous carbon films (a-C:H) elaborated by distributed electron cyclotron resonance plasma were studied by contact angle measurements in relation to composition, structure and topography. Tetrahedral a-C:H (ta-C:H) showed relatively high water contact angle (CA) up to 82.3°, and low surface energy (Es), down to 25.3 mJ/m2. Hydrophobicity was found to increase with the intensity of the ion bombardment and with the tetrahedral character. A decrease of the dispersive component is responsible of the decrease of surface energy with substrate bias. Low mass-density polymer-like a-C:H (PLC) presents also a relatively high hydrophobicity with high water CA, up to 76.7°, and low surface energy values, down to 32.1 mJ/m2. Hydrophobicity is interpreted as resulting from a surface layer rich in sp2-carbon for ta-C:H and rich in C–H bonds for PLC.
