Abstract

Grain size and orientation of the nanocrystallites can be controlled by varying deposition conditions. Film hardnesses on Beuhler microhardness tester were high. These properties allows the deposition of ultra-fine grained, biocompatible ceramic films with strong potential for reducing ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene wear in total joint arthroplasty, thereby extending useful joint lifetime.
