  1. 1. Antibacterial Strategies for Titanium Biomaterials

    Författare :Erik Unosson; Ken Welch; Håkan Engqvist; Timo Närhi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Titanium; silver; biomaterial; antibacterial; photocatalysis; hydrogen peroxide; reactive oxygen species; combinatorial materials science; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Sammanfattning : Titanium and titanium based alloys are widely used in dentistry and orthopedics to replace hard tissue and to mend broken bones. It has become a material of choice due to its low density, high strength, good biocompatibility and its capacity to integrate closely with the bone. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Electronic Properties of Metal Oxide Films Studied by Core Level Spectroscopy

    Nyckelord :Physics; electron spectroscopy; metal oxide; chemical vapour deposition; ion insertion; metal organic; band alignment; zirconium; titanium; silicon; high k; Fysik;

    Sammanfattning : In this dissertation core level electron spectroscopy has been employed to study various aspects of metal oxide films grown under ultra-high vacuum conditions. Studies on in situ ion insertion of lithium into thin TiO2 systems were performed. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Investigation of electrochemical properties and performance of stimulation/sensing electrodes for pacemaker applications

    Författare :Anna Norlin; Jinshan Pan; Dieter Scharnweber; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; pacemaker electrode; interfacial property; biomaterial; electrostimulation charge transfer mechanism; electrochemical impedance spectroscopy; transient processes; plasma electrolysis anodisation; porous niobium oxide; ruthenium oxide; nano-porous carbon; iridium oxide; titanium nitride; platinum; surface roughness; porous electrode; pacing impedance; electrode polarisation; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : People suffering from certain types of arrhythmia may benefit from the implantation of a cardiac pacemaker. Pacemakers artificially stimulate the heart by applying short electrical pulses to the cardiac tissue to restore and maintain a steady heart rhythm. By adjusting the pulse delivery rate the heart is stimulated to beat at desired pace. LÄS MER

  4. 4. On the bone response to oxidized titanium implants. The role of microporous structure and chemical composition of the surface oxide in enhanced osseointegration

    Författare :Young-Taeg Sul; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Oxidized titanium implants; micro arc oxidation; oxide growth; surface oxide properties; bone; biomechanical tests; histomorphometry; enzyme histochemistry.;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Titanium implants have been widely used clinically for various types of bone-anchored reconstructions. A thin native oxide film, naturally formed on titanium implants contacts with bone tissue and has been considered to be of great importance for successful osseointegration. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Preparation and Characterization of Glow Disharge Modifies Titanium Surfaces

    Författare :Björn-Owe Aronsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :Titanium; surface modification; surface properties; plasma techniques; oxidation; surface spectroscopy; TiO2; biomaterials;

    Sammanfattning : The main theme of the present thesis is controlled preparation and characterization of oxidized titanium surfaces. Such surfaces are of general technological interest. LÄS MER
