Spark Plasma Sintered Hydroxyapatite-Yttria Stablized Zirconia Composites
Hydroxyapatite (HA) - yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) composites were successfully fabricated by spark plasma sintering (SPS). The HA-YSZ composites were fully densified after spark plasma sintering sintering at 1200 oC for 5 minutes. The equiaxial YSZ grains were uniformly dispersed in the HA matrix. The HA-YSZ composites sintered at 1200 degrees Celsius showed microhardness of about 9 GPa, Young’s modulus of up to 160 GPa, and bending strength of 200 MPa, much higher than those of pure HA.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
