Topics include deposition of platinum nanoparticles into copper foils by electrophoresis, cermet based on submicron powder, suppression of sintering defects in metal/ceramic graded layers, densification of ceramic powder blends during microwave sintering, and the effect of two-step sintering on polycrystalline alumina ceramics.
These ceramic oxides, particularly high purity polycrystalline alumina, with high compressive strength, very low coefficient of friction (2), negligible wear rate (3) and extreme chemical inertness in physiological environment have emerged as the most suitable material of construction for the orthopaedic joints (4).
