Abstract

The adhesion of optical thin films on cellulose triacetate (TAC) was enhanced with surface pretreatment by argon–helium plasma. The optical properties, water contact angle, surface morphology, and thin film adhesion of TAC substrate that had been treated with different plasma gases were also investigated. An antireflection coating adhered well to TAC with an appropriate interface layer.
