|Title:||Structural and thermal characterization of Ti plus O Ion implanted ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE)||Authors:||Öztarhan, Ahmet

|Issue Date:||2009||Publisher:||American Institute of Physics||Series/Report no.:||AIP Conference Proceedings||Abstract:||In this work, Metal-Gas Hybrid Ion Implantation technique was used as a tool for the surface modification of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE). Samples were Ti + O ion implanted by using Metal-Vapour Vacuum Arc (MEVVA) ion implanter to a fluence of 5x10(16) ion/cm(2) for each species and extraction voltage of 30 kV. Untreated and surface treated samples were investigated by Rutherford Back Scattering (RBS) Spectrometry, Attenuated Total Reflectance - Fourier Transform Infrared (ATR-FTIR) Spectroscopy, Thermo Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). Results indicate that Ti + O ion implantation can be applied on UHMWPE surfaces successfully. ATR-FTIR spectra indicate that the C-H concentration on the surface decreased after Ti + O implantation. Thermal characterization with TGA and DSC shows that polymeric decomposition temperature is shifted after ion implantation.||Description:||20th International Conference on Application of Accelerators in Research and Industry||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/11147/10049||ISBN:||978-0-7354-0633-9||ISSN:||0094-243X
