This work demonstrates the successful deposition of bioactive glass (BG)45S5 coatings on various metallic and ceramic substrates at room temperature under low vacuum condition by using aerosol deposition (AD). This room temperature and particle impact consolidation-based deposition method enabled us to deposit well-adhered and dense BG coatings directly on metallic and ceramic substrates. In vitro tests with human osteoblast-like cells on substrates with a 45S5 BG coating demonstrated high cell activity on the surfaces. All tested materials exhibited high in vitro biocompatibility as no inhibition in cell proliferation could be observed. The utilization of AD process for achieving non-crystalline BG coatings is promising for practical bio-medical applications, e.g., bioactive coatings on bioinert metallic and ceramic substrates.
