Towards degradation-resistant implant biomaterials

TESCAN FE-SEM MIRA3 for investigating particle morphology
Enhancing resistance to biodegradation of Mg-Zn alloys for improved potential implant biomaterials can be developed by incorporating hydroxyapatite (HA) into Ma-Zn alloys via selective laser melting. The TESCAN FE-SEM MIRA3 was used to image HA and Mg-3Zn raw powders to investigate their particle morphologies.
