    The tribological properties of materials, i.e. the wear resistance of the surface layers, can considerably be improved by means of ion implan-tation. A promising application of this technique is the surface modification of titanium alloys which are widely used for medical products, such as orthopaedic endo-prostheses. For titanium-based knee joint… CONTINUE READING
