Paper Title:
Phase Stability of Zirconia Toughened Alumina Composite for Artificial Joints
  Abstract

The phase stability under aqueous condition and changes in the wear region after the Pin-on-Flat wear testing were evaluated using Raman and fluorescence spectroscopy techniques and X-ray diffractometry for a newly developed zirconia toughened alumina (JMM-ZTA). This study suggests that JMM-ZTA is a highly stable material under aqueous environment in the human body and has a high wear resistance in Pin-on-Flat wear tests. This results from a transformation toughening mechanism operative in JMM-ZTA. Therefore, JMM-ZTA appears to have a possibility to improve the performance of monolithic alumina as a material for hip and knee joint prostheses.
