Abstract

Abstract A 3 : 1 composition of functional monomer : multifunctional acrylate was spin coated and later cross-linked under the influence of keV electron irradiation on the surface of silicon to generate a surface-anchored cross-linked network bearing functional moieties. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) as well as wetting angle measurements were used for the analysis of functional monomer cross-linked surfaces. Results of the surface reconstruction of surfaces and electron irradiated on coated silicon wafers reveal that long-term hydrophilic surfaces can be achieved. Thus, the surface architecture can be favorably manipulated by using this remarkable technique with a suitable combination of functional monomers and cross-linkers.
