Fluorocarbon plasma polymer coatings having a super-hydrophobic character are prepared by means of magnetron sputtering of polytetrafluoroethylene target in an argon atmosphere. It is demonstrated that Ar pressure and substrate target distance are the key parameters determining wettability of the coatings, since they influence significantly morphology and chemical composition of the deposited films.
