Title: Characterization of Hydrothermally Annealed Low Temperature Bioactive Thin Film Coatings of Hydroxyapatite on TiAl6V4 Implant material
Author: Saju, K K; Dr Sreejith, P S
Abstract: This thesis summarizes the results on the growth and characterisation of thin films of HA grown on TiAl6V4 (Ti) implant material at a lower substrate temperature by a combination of Pulsed laser deposition and a hydrothermal treatment to get sufficiently strong crystalline films suitable for orthopaedic applications. The comparison of the properties of the coated substrate has been made with other surface modification techniques like anodization and chemical etching. The in-vitro study has been conducted on the surface modified implants to assess its cell viability. A molecular level study has been conducted to analyze the adhesion mechanism of protein adhesion molecules on to HA coated implants.
