Ti-Ca-P Films Formed by RF Magnetron Sputtering Method Using Dual Targets


Article Preview

Ti-Ca-P films on commercial pure (cp) titanium plates were uniformly deposited using dual target RF magnetron sputtering apparatus with DC magnetron sputtering system under the conditions of 50 W DC power to a cp titanium target and 200 W RF power to a β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) target for 60 min in 2.2×10-1 Pa Ar. Resulting samples had smooth surface like mirror. Crystal structure of the film was amorphous. The film had the chemical composition of about 3: 1.7: 1: 11 in Ti: Ca: P: O ratio under controlling the β-TCP target RF sputtering power and the titanium target DC sputtering power. The film and the method are expected to be useful for remodeling surfaces of various titanium implants.
