Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) We have studied the influence of chemical composition on the constitution and elastic properties of dense radio-frequency (RF)-sputtered hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings. The chemical composition was modified by varying the RF sputtering power density (PD). As the PD was increased by 240%, the Ca/P ratio measured by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy increased from ˜1.51 to ˜1.82. X-ray diffraction indicates phase pure hexagonal HA except for the sample prepared at the highest PD where CaO and Ca3(PO4)2 also form. Deviations from the stoichiometric Ca/P ratio result in reduction of the elastic modulus. For Ca/P?=?1.51?±?0.02, the elastic modulus decreases by ˜15%. This may be due to incorporation of Ca vacancies in the lattice, while for Ca/P?=?1.82?±?0.02, the average elastic modulus decreases by ˜10% due to formation of additional phases.
