Abstract: The surface of retrieved alumina (Al2O3) femoral heads was investigated by piezo-spectroscopic techniques based on confocal photo-stimulated...

Authors: Sabine Begand, Thomas Oberbach, Wilfried Glien

Abstract: For orthopaedic applications an Alumina Toughened Zirconia Ceramic was tested regarding its mechanical behaviour. We observed a marked...
