The development of titanium-based orthopedic and dental implants is aimed to create coating layers that increase corrosion resistance, have antibacterial activity and promote bone tissue embedding. The goal of this work is the preparation of double coating layers and the examination of their structural and biological properties. In addition to their biocompatibility, these layered structures reduce diffusion of metal ions into the living tissue. The growth defects and pores of the bioinert TiAlN/CNx multilayer and the biotolerant TiAlSiN nanolayer will be closed with titanium- and aluminium-oxide layers, thus reducing the toxic effect caused by implants.
The project is realised in the frame of a bilateral Science and Technology (S&T) cooperation.
