Abstract

This chapter aims to review the recent trends pertaining to the enhanced functionalities, including low Young’s modulus, self-tunable Young’s modulus, and low magnetic susceptibility, of titanium and zirconium alloys for use in orthopedic implants. These value-added functionalities can be realized by controlling the type of crystal structure and their lattice structure stabilities, which are related to the phase stability of titanium and zirconium alloys.
