Nitriding is an effective method to improve the surface properties of titanium for many demanding applications such as surgical implants. In this study, a continuous wave Nd-YAG laser was used to conduct laser gas nitriding (LGN) on the substrate of commercial pure titanium. The surface characteristics of the titanium before and after the LGN process were analyzed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The results showed that most contamination signals were eliminated by sputtering the tested… CONTINUE READING
