As mechanical polishing often not leads to smooth surfaces, a novel ion beam cutting technique has proven to be very effective. In this article, the applicability of a novel triple ion beam (TIB) cutting technique for a clean metallographic preparation of the diamond/Al composites will be described. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/triple-ion-beam-cutting-of-diamondal-composites-for-interface-characterization/ Sat, 21 Jun 2014 09:22:00 +0000 PhD Gang Ji, PhD Wolfgang Grünewald https://www.leica-microsystems.com/13487 Surface Metrology Anti-slip Treatment on Glazed Ceramic Tiles: Microstructural and Topographic Modifications Porcelain stoneware is a product for which the synergy between the manufacturing technology and physical-mechanical properties has been particularly well developed with excellent results. Despite its excellent technical characteristics, the slip resistance can be significantly different depending on the tile surface finish: structured or smooth, glazed or polished. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/anti-slip-treatment-on-glazed-ceramic-tiles-microstructural-and-topographic-modifications/ Wed, 14 May 2014 13:26:00 +0000 PhD Elisa Rambaldi, Barbara Mazzanti https://www.leica-microsystems.com/13105 Surface Metrology Digital Microscopy An Innovative Non-contact Method to Determine Surface Free Energy on Micro-areas Surface free energy (SFE) is a property which depends on the chemical state and roughness of the surface and it is necessary to develop a reliable method to evaluate SFE value on a small area, taking into account these two different contributions. Today contact angle methods are the most used and they allow to evaluate the global mean value of SFE on areas of mm2 size. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/an-innovative-non-contact-method-to-determine-surface-free-energy-on-micro-areas/ Mon, 28 Apr 2014 16:41:00 +0000 https://www.leica-microsystems.com/12785 Surface Metrology Digital Microscopy Quality Assurance Surface Roughness of Flowable Resin Composites eroded by Acidic and Alcoholic Drinks Acidic beverages, such as soft drinks (orange juice, and cola), or ethanol (whisky), can produce erosion of resin composites. The surface degradation of resin materials is related to the content and distribution of the fillers, the composition of the matrix resin, and the effect of silane surface treatment on the fillers. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/surface-roughness-of-flowable-resin-composites-eroded-by-acidic-and-alcoholic-drinks/ Thu, 24 Apr 2014 20:51:00 +0000 https://www.leica-microsystems.com/12648 Surface Metrology Quality Assurance Digital Microscopy The Effects of Peri-implantitis Decontamination Treatments on the Surface Roughness and Chemistry of a Titanium Alloy Used for Dental Implants: Implications for Bone Reintegration Titanium (Ti) alloys are biocompatible materials which are often used for human implants, especially in dentistry. For this study, different types of odontological (dental) treatments for peri-implantitis, an infection of the gum and dental tissue around the implant, were performed on a Ti-6Al-4V (TAV) alloy, typically used for implants, to study the effect on its surface roughness and chemistry. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/the-effects-of-peri-implantitis-decontamination-treatments-on-the-surface-roughness-and-chemistry-of-a-titanium-alloy-used-for-dental-implants-implications-for-bone-reintegration/ Wed, 19 Feb 2014 11:22:00 +0000 PhD Jordi Diaz-Marcos, MSc Joan Vilana Balastegui, DDS, MS, PhD Angel F.
