Abstract

The effect of swift heavy oxygen ion irradiation of hydroxyapatite on its in vitro bioactivity was studied. The irradiation experiment was performed using oxygen ions at energy of 100 MeV with 1 × 1012 and 1 × 1013 ions/cm2 fluence range. The irradiated samples were characterized by glancing angle X-ray diffraction (GXRD), photoluminescence spectroscopy (PL) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). GXRD showed that irradiated samples exhibited better crystallinity. The irradiated samples revealed an increase in PL intensity. In addition, the irradiated hydroxyapatite was found to have enhanced bioactivity.
