Technological advances for improved properties of high performance implants with biomimetic nanostructures

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


In nature, many systems have properties far beyond of those formed using the same synthetic materials, because nature's composites mineral crystal growth and orientation is controlled. Ceramics and ceramic composites are one group of natural materials where the mineral component is prevalent, such as in shells, teeth, and bones. In biological systems, the designed structure and material are connected on the contrary to synthetic materials. By combining biological and synthetic approaches in design, new biomimetic multifunctional biomaterials can be developed. In this paper various technological advances suitable for use in biocompatible applications are presented
