Application of Taguchi method to areal roughness-based surface topography control by waterjet treatments

In a new paper, to appear in Applied Surface Science Advances, Prof. Jing Xie (BIT) and her colleagues, including Dr. keren Shemtov-Yona discuss the possibility to roughen metallic surfaces using particle-less waterjet processing,

a technique that is particularly suitable for the preparation of dental and other implants using a “green” technique that roughens a surface without the need for particles (grit blasting) or acid etchants in a predictable and controllable fashion.
