                         thermoplastic composites carbon fibers/Polyphenylene sulfide 
                         (CF/PPS) for aerospace applications. After the production of the 
                         thermoplastic composites through hot compression molding, a 
                         silicon deposition was carried out on its surface using Plasma 
                         Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD). Then, the Plasma 
                         Immersion Ion Implantation (PIII) process was executed on the 
                         silicon coated samples to create an amorphous silicon nitride 
                         layer. Subsequently, the coated and uncoated samples were 
                         characterized by means of the following techniques: optical 
                         microscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) 
                         and X-ray excited photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). By analyzing 
                         all the results obtained from the characterizations, it was 
                         concluded that a layer of amorphous silicon oxynitride was 
                         generated on the CF/PPS composite without damaging it. This result 
                         is an innovative step concerning the application of this material 
                         in a space environment (low earth orbit).",
