The weak adhesion strength of most polymers hampers their role as a substitute for metal encapsulants for electronic components. Autohesion, the enabling technology that relates to the formation of bonds between two identical polymer surfaces, has the potential to provide bonds of similar strength to welded bonds. In this presentation, I will explain the use of advanced plasma modifications of polymer surfaces to promote certain chemical and physical phenomena that will increase bond strength. By developing novel bonding techniques, we will join a new range of high performance polymers for high value added applications, e.g., medical implant design.
