Abstract
Polymers are widely used for industrial and (bio)medical applications but due to their low surface free energy they are often unsuitable for use. Atmospheric pressure plasma technology offers attractive perspectives to alter the surface properties of polymers. The use of non-equilibrium plasma for surface modifications is a rapidly growing research field. Plasmas can induce topographical modifications, change the chemical composition of the surface but can also be used for cleaning and deposition purposes. This chapter presents an overview on recent advances of atmospheric plasma surface modification techniques on different polymers. The most common used plasma sources will be reviewed together with their most important effects induced on different polymers.
