Paper Title:
Comparative Studies of Fracture Surfaces of a Biomaterial with the Use of a Profilographometer and Confocal Microscope
  Abstract

The aim of the paper is to present comparative studies of the parameters of the fracture surface topography of titanium alloy, obtained by means of two techniques. The research equipment consisted of a Taylor Hobson profilographometer, Talysurf, and a confocal microscope, LEXT OLS 3000 by Olympus. By means of a contact and non-contact method, files of coordinates of the investigated surfaces were obtained, based on which some chosen stereometric parameters were calculated. The tests carried out as part of the study confirmed the usefulness and the possibility of using a confocal microscope as a modern instrument for evaluating the topography of non-planar surfaces. In the case of statistical parameters representing the whole surface under examination, very high convergence of the stereometric structure parameters was obtained, described by means of profilographometry and confocal microscopy methods.
