Magnesium Films Deposited on Different Substrates via Arc PVD Method
A hybrid biomaterial was produced by dressing titanium with magnesium in order to utilize the most advantageous properties of both materials. Titanium was coated with magnesium via arc physical vapor deposition (PVD) method, and a third agent between titanium and magnesium, as a bonding medium was also used. The microstructures and chemical compositions of magnesium arc-PVD coated Ti-6Al-4V alloy and silicon wafer were investigated. The experimental results showed that Mg can be deposited onto Ti-6Al-4V alloy and on silicon wafer by using arc-PVD method.
