An extensive research work on development of nanostructured TiO2 layers on the surface of titanium based materials for biomedical implants led the authors to the optimization of process parameters of electrochemical anodization in phosphate/fluoride based electrolytes. Based on those parameters, a dedicated optimized electrochemical anodization setup was originally designed and realized. The anodization bath was designed in order to provide a proper circulation of electrolyte and the possibility of distance anode-cathode modification, the DC power supply was designed accordingly to the electrical parameters requested by the nanotubes development, and a dedicated software (Nanosource) was developed for process control and ease and flexibility of process parameters acquisition, storage and processing.
