Abstract

Using Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) for flexible electronics is challenging because of its surface properties, leading to cracks and poor adhesion. In this paper, we present a study of plasma treatment on PDMS surface and its effect on modifying the surface properties for metal deposition. We observe that the sinusoidal structure that is formed on PDMS can be controlled by varying the plasma oxidation time and temperature.
