Growth of Cerium Doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet from an Alumina Rich Melt
Abstract This WSU invention concerns the growth of Cerium Doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (Ce:YAG) from a melt containing aluminum oxide with known amounts of YAG. Ce:YAG is a phosphor, when in its pure single-crystal from, with a wide range of uses. Notably, crystals can be used in white light-emitting diodes, as a coating on a high-brightness blue Indium...

In-vitro Biocompatibility of Laser Processed Ta Coatings on Ti (former title: Bone Replacement Materials)
AbstractLow density, low stiffness load-bearing implant structures are a dream for orthopedic surgeons. In total hip replacements (THR), dense metals with higher density, stiffness, and strength than natural bone are traditionally used to replace the diseased or damaged hip, and help restore the natural hip function of the patient. Typical lifetime...
