Investigation of the process of recrystallization calcium carbonate microparticles grown on polycaprolactone nanofibers using scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction

Background and Objectives: A method for the mineralization of polycaprolactone nanofibers with microparticles of calcium carbonate (vaterite) is presented. The proposed composite material can be used as a tissue engineering scaffold and a drug delivery vehicle for regenerative medicine. Materials and Methods: The process of recrystallization of vaterite microparticles formed on polycaprolactone fibers into calcite is studied using scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction.

Influence of Argon Pressure on Texture and Microstructure of Cobalt Films Produced by Dc-Sputtering

Background and Objectives: The development of methods of textured Co film formation is of practical interest in the field of creating media with perpendicular recording of information or lateral spin-valve structures. Despite a rather wide study of the growth conditions effects on the microcrystalline structure of sputtered cobalt films, the possibility of changing the texture and microstructure via a change of the gas pressure has not been discussed.
