In this study, a novel liquid precursor plasma spraying (LPPS) process was used to deposit Si, Mg, CO 32- substituted hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings (alone and cosubstituted) onto Ti-6Al-4V substrates. Salts of silicon, magnesium, and carbonate elements were directly added into the HA liquid precursor for subsequent plasma spraying. The phase composition, structure, and morphology of all HA coatings were characterized by x-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The results indicated that the trace elements were successfully incorporated into the HA structure and nanostructured coatin..
