Laser-engineered bioceramic coatings help connect bone and implant

By Martin Grolms / August 6, 2010

Samples of textures achieved with laser-engineered bioceramic coatings. These coatingscan provide a 3D topographic cue and appropriate chemistry suitable for load bearingimplant applications. Credit: Narendra Dohotre. Surfaces of artificial implants that mimic natural structures are expected to improve biocompatibility by enhancing the connection between the living bone and the surface. The challenge is to create…
