Corrosion and passivation kinetics study of biomedical passive metals

 

The project aims at investigating the effect of potential to the passivation of biomedical metals (CoCrMo or Ti alloys) and studying the passivation kinetics for a better predictability of hip joints degradation. The evolution with potential of passivation charge density will be measured in sulphuric acid as well as in a more representative biofluid. Subsequently, the passive film thickness and composition should be measured using AES or XPS to better understand the passivation mechanism.
