Scope Owing to their excellent surface oxides, titanium and titanium alloys are attractive to many applications that require high corrosion resistance, such as biomedical, chemical or mechanical applications. On the other hand, the poor tribological behavior given by the higher coefficient of friction and adhesive wear mechanism may lead to disrupting the protective oxide layer. In the case of biomedical applications, this involves an increment of risk of loosening at the bone-implant interface, while, in industrial applications, this issue can compromise the choice of titanium and titanium alloys.

This symposium invites to discuss the newest advancements in surface engineering and surface characterization of titanium and its alloys. Topics include:
i) Surface engineering of titanium and its alloys to grow well-defined and/or porous oxides
ii) Surface engineering for added functionality, such as antimicrobial properties and increased corrosion resistance
iii) Surface engineering by beam technologies
iv) Characterization of surface oxides of titanium and its alloys
v) Mechanistic understanding of titanium (alloy) surface interactions with different environments
vi) Surface and material engineering for wear protection
vii) Case studies
