The identification of life and the distinction against inorganic context is nearly as old as mankind. In this paper, energetic coating and implantation pro-cesses are briefly introduced, followed by a presentation of the state-of-the-art of surface modification of metals with energetic ions, concentrating on stainless steel, CoCr alloys, titanium alloys, NiTi shape memory alloys and bioresorbable magnesium alloys. v
