FIGURE 5 Thrombogenicity behavior of HAP/alumina. Thus a proper clotting material can be de- signed to meet requirements. Conclusions The surface behavior of HAP/alumina with Ar + ion implantation has been suc- cessfully investigated. RBS analysis con- firms the desired stoichiometric ratio of calcium to phosphorous in the prepared samples. Argon ions improve corrosion re- sistance and electrochemical stability. The maximum impedance corrosion resistance was found at the ion dose of 1 × 10 15 ions/ cm 2 . The thrombogenicity study proves that clotting increases as the ion dose in- creases. Thus, a material can be designed w ith th e clottin g p erc ent a ge required for materials to be used as hard tissue implants.
