Elaboration of a special coating (titanium and nitinol) to be used in the medical field

Project: PHD

Description

In the biomedical scaffold, materials have to respond to different specifical properties in fonction of their use. To improve corrosion resistance , optical visbility and biocompatibility, a thin tantalum oxide layer seemed to be a great idea. After this step, an organic modification with organophosphonic acids to improve hydroxyapatite growth.
