Abstract

A study was performed on oxide films on metallic biomaterials. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy was used to characterize oxide film thickness, surface composition and depth distribution of constituent elements before and after extended immersion. It was shown that processing affects the structure and chemistry of surface oxides, which in turn affects properties and performance.
