Abstract
ION BEAM ASSISTED DEPOSITION (IBAD) WILL BE USED AS A METHOD OF PRODUCING A THIN, ULTRA-LOW (<0.05) COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION FILM OF SILICONE OIL ON STAINLESS STEEL GUIDEWIRES. RESEARCH CONDUCTED BY OTHERS HAS DEMONSTRATED THE POTENTIAL OF SUCH A PROCESS. IN PHASE I, A MATRIX OF ION BEAM PARAMETERS WILL BE USED TO DEPOSIT COATINGS ONTO STEEL COUPONS, AND THE COUPONS WILL BE SCREENED FOR ADHERENCE, FRICTION, AND BIOCOMPATIBLITY.
