Pulsed Laser Ablation Deposition (PLAD) was studied using a biomedical grade polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), containing a nanostructured resin filler. It was observed that in PLAD deposition of silica filed PDMS, higher fluences result in higher contact angles or decreasing hydrophilicity. It was also observed that the overall oxygen content decreases with increasing fluence levels, while the silicon and carbon content increases. The results show that more silica-like film is deposited at lower fluence, while a more PDMS-like film is deposited at higher fluences.
