Comparison of surface modification by ion implantation and cold plasma assisted treatments

Three alloys TAlVa, TAlFe and SS316L, were used as base materials and 3 methods of treatment were compared:
glow discharge ion implantation without mass separation;
sputter deposited coatings of carbon (C) doped;
plasma diffusion and physical deposition process (PVD and PACVD). The development of the most appropriate surface modification techniques at an industrial scale, depending on the prostheses biomechanical and economical requirements have been targeted.
