The design of implants and functional prostheses requires superficial modifications that promote fast and lasting osseointegration. Magnetron sputtering enables to design nanostructured and textured β-Ti rich Ti-22Nb-10Zr (wt.%) coatings with variable mechanical properties (hardness and Young's modulus). Depending on the magnitude of the bias voltage used during deposition of the coating, martensitic transformation from the unstable β (bcc) to α" (orthorhombic) phase is activated. This

The residual stresses were measured by nanoindentation, the microstructure and phase evolution were characterized by X-ray diffraction. The spatial phase distribution was determined by transmission electron microscopy. The calculated real hardness increases from 2.1 to 4.1 GPa as the bias voltage is increased from 0 to -148 V. The calculus confirms that the coating has a non-linear elastic behavior.
