A plasma-irradiated poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) film has a long lifetime of bonding capability. To clarify its origin, a PET film was irradiated with oxygen plasma. It was then exposed to normal atmosphere including water vapor. FTIR absorption on the irradiated and non-irradiated films was measured at different times after the start of evacuation. The irradiated film has a larger amount of OH than the non irradiated film, and OH is generated on the film surface. The irradiated film has a larger amount of adsorbed water, because the surface is activated by the created OH. The adsorbed water is desorbed rapidly with increasing evacuation time in the non irradiated film, but it is desorbed more gradually in the irradiated film. Water has hydrogen bonds with OH; thus, the water desorption is suppressed. The OH absorption band is shifted to the lower wave number side owing to the hydrogen bonds. The irradiated surface may be protected by the water from the atmosphere. © 2014 The Japan Society of Applied Physics. Source

Hetero double-layers of LaBaMnO3 (LBMO)/ZnO were fabricated by ion beam sputtering on substrates of MgO, sapphire (SP), LaAlO3 (LAO), and SrTiO3 (STO). All the surfaces of substrates, ZnO and LBMO have step-terrace morphology. The p-LBMO/n-ZnO/SP shows junction rectification at different temperatures. The junction resistance follows from colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) of LBMO based on DEC model. The different LBMO/ZnO junctions on the different substrates show different junction behaviors at room temperatures. LBMO/ZnO/STO has the largest rectification factor of 210. After running measurement currents, LBMO/ZnO/STO shows current-voltage (I-V) switchings. LBMO/ZnO/MgO shows very clear switching and large hysteresis between upward and downward voltage sweeps. These are interpreted by CMR and DEC model, and phase separation. The switching is caused by disconnection of percolation path consisting of ferromagnetic metallic grains. The higher resistant state cannot be quickly transformed back to the lower resistant state during the downward sweep. © 2014 The Japan Society of Applied Physics. Source

To clarify the bonding mechanism for the plasma-irradiated PET films and the origin of the long lifetime of the bonding ability, we soaked the irradiated films in various types of liquid reagent, then tried to bond them by heat-pressing. The irradiated films do not lose the bonding ability after soaking in water, acid, alkali, and organic solvents, whereas they lose it after soaking in ionic solutions of AlCl3 and FeCl3. The COOH is created on the surface by the irradiation, but it is consumed by the chemical reaction with Al and Fe ions. This is the origin of the inactivation of the irradiated surface and the disappearance of the bonding ability after the soaking. The result supports our proposal of "dehydrated condensation reaction" concerning COOH as the bonding mechanism. The irradiated films should be stable in a normal atmosphere for a long time because they are not subjected to water, acid, alkali, and organic solvents. © 2014 The Japan Society of Applied Physics.
