This work is an attempt to increasing corrosion resistance of SS 316 L through coating with CeO2/β-TCP composites by RF sputtering technique at constant conditions. The composites include the substitution of cerium oxide in TCP lattice structure with seven weight percents. Many techniques were used to confirm the substitution involve XRD, FESEM/EDS and AFM, generally, (60%CeO2/40%TCP and 70%CeO2/30%TCP) gave the best substitution.

Some biological properties were measured for coated SS 316L specimens inculding antibacterial, good biocompatibility and ability to osseointegration. Some mechanical properties were tested included adhesion and microhardness. Electrochemical property (Corrosion) in SBF at 37oC was tested to measure corrosion data.
