Paper Abstract

Hydroxyapatite (HAp) is a well-known bioceramic, nonorganic material of the bones of the vertebrate responsible for their mechanical durability. In human bones it occupies 60-80 % of the volume depending on a number of factors. Synthetic HAp is valued in bone endoprosthetic to its high biocompatibility. It is widely used to fill cavities of bone and as the coating of bone implants to increase their biocompatibility and adhesion to bone surface. In this paper a diffuse reflectance spectra of plasma-spraying deposited hydroxyapatite were presented and compared with pure powder samples. Optical band gap were estimated basing on Kubelka-Munk functions and Tauc plot extrapolation. We found that deposition process affects the value of band gap.
