Comparative Studies of Textured Pulsed Laser Deposition and Sol-Gel Growth of Thin Hydroxyapatite Layers on Titanium Substrates
The aim of this paper is the residual stress evaluation in dental implants and the improvement of adherence at the metal-ceramic interface. This study is focused on the development of a multi-layer system model of Hydroxyapatite/TiO2/Ti components. Our aim is to validate new methods of laser ablation deposition and sol-gel, by controlling the residual stresses and actual adherence to titanium substrates. We present a report of the growth of hydroxyapatite layers by PLD (pulsed laser deposition) and sol-gel deposition, and the measurement of their residual stresses.
