Allyl methacrylate (AMA) and acrylic acid (AA) are deposited in using of a radio frequency atmospheric plasma torch, and characterized by Infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy (IRRAS) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The thickness of the coatings is evaluated using spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE). Whereas the surface chemistry of plasma deposited AA is influenced by the power, AMA seems to be more resistant to plasma induced fragmentation.
