Abstract

Bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) are the subject of important research in materials science and processing. Ti-based BMGs are expected to be utilized as new biomaterials because they have high strength, low Young's modulus and excellent corrosion resistance. Bioactivity might depend on developing a microstructure on the surface of the BMG A femtosecond laser is a good tool for forming a surface microstructure. Ti-Zr-Cu-Pd bulk alloys were irradiated with femtosecond lasers. After the irradiation, the BMGs were treated using a hydrothermal electrochemical method. The results of soaking BMGs in simulated body fluid suggest that the BMGs with a surface microstructure have better bioactivity than the BMGs without.
