Abstract

CNT arrays were synthesized by Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and spun into ribbons, which were coated using Atmospheric Pressure Microwave Plasma system. Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) characterization of CNT ribbons indicated the presence of polymer films with CF2 as a repeat unit. Atomic concentration of C, F and O in the coated films was estimated from X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) data. Types of bonding between the elements in the coated films was studied by curve fitting of C 1s XPS spectra.
