Abstract

The surface oxide films were prepared by Electron Cyclotron Resonance (ECR) plasma oxidation on Ti substrates. Octacalcium phosphate (OCP) and dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (DCPD) peaks were formed after calcification by supersaturated calcium and phosphate solutions. Calcification ability was enhanced with increasing the oxidation time and the total pressure of ECR plasma treatment during oxidation. The results demonstrated that the calcium phosphate nucleation and the deposition can be controlled by various ECR plasma conditions.
