Enhancement of surface properties of biomaterials using plasma-based technologies

  title={Enhancement of surface properties of biomaterials using plasma-based technologies},
  author={Paul K. Chu},
Development of new biomaterials typically takes a long time due to extensive tests and lengthy approval procedures. Plasma surface modification offers an exciting alternative by modifying selective surface mechanical and biological properties of conventional biomaterials to suit particular needs. Hence, materials that possess favorable bulk properties can have their surfaces redesigned to cater to biomedical applications. Plasma surface modification is a popular method to improve the multi… CONTINUE READING
