The reason for the extended use of titanium and its alloys as implant biomaterials stems from their lower elastic modulus, their superior biocompatibility and improved corrosion resistance compared to the more conventional stainless steel and cobalt-based alloys [Niinomi, M., Hattori, T., Niwa, S., 2004. Material characteristics and biocompatibility of low(More)
Direct monitoring of temperature, chemistry and microstructure is required to understand microwave heating in more detail, in order to fully exploit the unique features this non-equilibrium processing method can offer. In this paper, we show first that microwave radiometry can be used to follow volumetrically the thermal trajectory of microwave-heated(More)

The influence of short-time milling on the atomic structure of amorphous Co(70.3)Fe(4.7)B(25) has been investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), x-ray powder diffraction (XRD), vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) and x-ray absorption fine-structure (XAFS) techniques. Our results prove that the milling process crystallizes the initially(More)
