LaserImplant - Laser-induced hierarchical micro-/nano-structures for controlled cell adhesion at implants A large application area of medical implants are currently dental prostheses â€“ a rapidly growing market in ageing societies. These implants consisting of Ti or a Ti-alloy should provide good and fast osseo-integration into the jaw bone. Opposed to that demand, in other applications (for instance for bone screws and plates), the implants may have to be removed after some months or several years and shall, therefore, not be completely overgrown by the bodiesâ€™ cells. Hence, a one-step laser-based surface functionalization of implant materials for controlling the cell growth is strongly desired.
