Summary Calcium phosphate coatings produced by plasma spraying process have been successfully used on orthopaedic and dental implants for improvement of the fixation of these implants in bone. This book presents the scattered novel results that have been achieved in years in study on various thin calcium phosphate coatings produced by diverse techniques
