Wollastonite coatings on titanium alloys substrates were prepared by plasma spraying and incubated in simulated body fluids for different periods to investigate the nucleation and growth of apatite on their surface. Surface structural changes of the specimens were analyzed by XRD and IR technologies. SEM and EDS were used to observe surface morphologies and… CONTINUE READING
