Research on orthodontic alloys

This research program utilized mechanical testing, metallographic etching, microhardness testing, SEM, and X-ray microtomography to reveal the surface and bulk morphology and structure of brackets of different composition and manufacturing process, i.e., laser-welding, metal-injection-molding (MIM) and Ni-, Au- and Ag-brazing. The ionic release from metals and alloys was studied and the significant biological implications were assessed. [...]

Surface characterization of biomaterials

These studies employed XPS, AFM, Auger spectroscopy and SEM-EDS to characterize the surface properties of alloys and single-crystal alumina and polycrystalline ceramics materials. The major differences between surface and bulk structures arise from the direct accessibility of surface molecules for reaction with adjacent phases, and the tendency for surface energy minimization to reach en equilibrium [...]

Orthodontic Biomaterials Network

“working jointly”
The ORTHODONTIC BIOMATERIALS NETWORK was initiated by T. Eliades in 2002 as a research network of Universities and Research Centers
