Abstract

In this work, Ultra High Molecular Weight Poly Ethylene (UHMWPE) samples were implanted with W + C ion by using Metal-Vapour Vacuum Arc (MEVVA) ion implantation technique. Samples were implanted with W and C atoms with a fluence of 1017ion/cm2 and extraction voltage of 30 kV. Mechanism underlies this modification characterized with ATR-FTIR, UV-VIS-NIR Spectrum and Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry (RBS). Surface morphology of implanted and unimplanted samples were examined in nanoscale with AFM.
