Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The current trend for prosthetic devices is the application of ceramic coatings on supports of different nature (i.e. more similar to bone mechanically) for an improved functional performance. The research activity reported is devoted to biocompatible ceramics coatings such as ceramic-vitreous systems to obtain surfaces capable of self-anchoring to bone tissue.
