  • Publication number: 20200149145
    Abstract: Provided herein are methods for the controlled, independent modification of the surface of titanium-based materials and compositions generated thereby. The methods allow for the alteration of multiple surface characteristics including generation of precise nanostructures, morphology, crystallography and chemical composition for increased biocompatibility, for example, osseointegration, osseoconduction, cell adhesion, cell proliferation, mechanical properties (e.g. elasticity, modulus, surface texture, porosity), hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity, steric hindrance, anti-inflammatory properties and/or anti-bacterial properties.

  • Publication number: 20190292652
    Abstract: A method for fabricating structures includes on a substrate includes providing the substrate having a substrate surface, and providing a set of control parameters to an ion beam source and to a thermal source corresponding to a desired structure topology. The method further includes using directed irradiation synthesis to cause self-organization of a plurality of structures comprising at least one of the group of nanostructures and microstructures in a first surface area of the substrate by exposing the substrate surface to an ion beam from the ion beam source and to thermal particles from the thermal source. The ion beam has a first area of effect on the substrate surface, and the thermal particles has a second area of effect on the substrate surface. Each of the first area of effect and the second area of effect including the first surface area.

  • Patent number: 9932664
    Abstract: A method for fabricating structures on substrate having a substrate surface includes providing a set of control parameters to an ion beam source and thermal source corresponding to a desired nanostructure topology. The method also includes forming a plurality of nanostructures in a first surface area of the substrate by exposing the substrate surface to an ion beam from the ion beam source and thermal energy from the thermal source. The ion beam has a first area of effect on the substrate surface, and the thermal energy has an second area of effect on the substrate surface Each of the first area and the second area includes the first surface area. In other words, the coincident beams under the set of control parameters produces a plurality of nano structures.
