Scope of this Special Issue is on thin film coatings for biomedical applications; this includes: Thin film nanocomposite coating over biomaterials to enhance properties, such as mechanical, tribology, biocompatibility, and corrosion resistance, of biomaterials.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to
- Biomaterials coating
- Mechanical behavior of biomaterials after coating
- Tribological Properties of thin film deposited biometerials
- Corrosion resistance of coated biomaterials
- Biocompatibilty of nanocomposite deposited over biomaterials
