This contribution is aimed to show the Mayn results recently obtained by our group in the framework of the COST Plasma and Ion Surface Engineering (PISE) ACTION 515. Two plasma-modification processes are briefly described, namely: the deposition of thin SiOxCyHz gas-barrier coatings on polyethylenetherephtalate and the modification of polyethylene aimed to the surface-immobilization of anti-thrombotic molecules. Particular attention is devoted to describe how the two processes can be controlled by means of plasma- and surface-diagnostic techniques.
