Assessment of Possibilities of Ceramic Biomaterial Fracture Surface Reconstruction Using Laser Confocal Microscopy and Long Working Distance Objective Lenses
A numerical description of fracture is an essential step in searching for the correlations between specific micromechanisms of decohesion and material characteristics designated with the use of fracture mechanics methods. This issue is critical to search for fundamental relationships between chemical composition, technology, structure, and properties of materials. It often happens that fracture surfaces are well developed, which can significantly hinder or even prevent the measurement and reconstruction of the tested material surface geometry. Herein, comparative measurements of a biomaterial surface were performed using laser confocal microscopy.
