Title:
Oxygen diffusion hardening of cp-titanium for biomedical applications 
Abstract:
Common methods to increase the wear resistance of titanium by surface hardening in biomedical applications, such as chemical/physical vapour deposition techniques or thermal/electrochemical oxidation, result in a layer of titanium dioxide or titanium nitride on the metal surface with a sharp interface between the hard and brittle coating and the ductile metallic substrate. A major disadvantage of these methods is that the sharp transition in material properties may cause exfoliation of these coa...    »
