Paper Title:
Neutron Diffraction Residual Strain Measurements in Plasma Sprayed Nanostructured Hydroxyapatite Coatings for Orthopaedic Implants
  Abstract

Residual strains in plasma sprayed and heat-treated hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings deposited on a titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V) substrate were investigated by means of neutron diffraction. Strain measurements were performed in vertical scan (“z-scanning”) mode to provide a through thickness strain profile in the coating and substrate materials. Results are discussed in terms of the influence of heat-treatment on the residual strain profile of these biomedical coatings. This investigation concluded that the heat-treatment had a significant effect on the residual strain profile in HA coatings.
