In this study, we focus on effect of diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating on scaffold for tissue engineering. DLC film was deposited on segmented polyurethane (SPU) scaffold sheet which consists of micro SUP fibers. Structural and compositional effects of the DLC film coating were investigated on cell growth as an investigation of biological response. The surface composition, morphology, structures, and wettability of the DLC film coating was estimated by using X-ray photoelectron spectrometer (XPS), Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Ar-laser Raman spectrophotometer (Raman), and contact angle measurement. And then, human umbilical vein endothelial (HUV-EC-C) cells were grown on the DLC coated scaffold sheet. The results presented here suggest that DLC film coating is promising approach to improve biological for tissue engineering.
