Carbon nanotube/polytetrafluoroethylene composite polymer targets (abbreviated as composite target) are proposed for use in the fabrication of plasma polymer fluorocarbon (abbreviated as PPFC) thin films using the mid-range frequency sputtering process. Large-area PPFC thin films were fabricated on roll-type PET substrate (polyethylene terephthalate, width 700 mm, thickness 100 Î¼m) by a pilot-scale roll-to-roll sputtering system. The PPFC thin films exhibit an amorphous phase with a smooth surface and show a high water contact angle, optical transmittance and bendability. Mechanical property of PPFC thin films were studied using nanoindentation method and analyzed using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. As the carbon nanotube concentration in the composite target increases, a carbon cross-linked structure was formed which enhanced the film hardness and the modulus of the PPFC thin films.
