Abstract

This investigation develops and explores a new method for depositing a DLC film containing titanium. A bioactive DLC film with titanium dopant (Ti-DLC) was formed by co-sputtering. To determine the properties of DLC films with and without Ti, the specimens were evaluated by material analyses and cell culture. The multilayered nanocrystal TiC was embedded in the amorphous DLC matrix. Microtwins were present between TiC and Ti-DLC. They relaxed residual stress and improved the adhesion of Ti-DLC to the TiC film. The Ti-DLC film proliferates more effectively than Ti or DLC, revealing that the biocompatibility of Ti-DLC clearly exceeds that of DLC, Ti and TiC films. The Ti-DLC film proliferates more effectively than Ti, TiC or DLC film, revealing that the biocompatibility of Ti-DLC clearly exceeds that of DLC and Ti film. In addition, the higher deposited plasma energies were, more densification the films were. It is believed that high plasma energy enhanced the film densification, and then improves surface contact area of adsorbing proteins. It is believed that enhancing cell attachment and subsequently inducing cell proliferation and cell differentiation is related with plasma energy during deposition of Ti-DLC films.
