We have demonstrated low temperature (500 - 600°C) laser deposition of dense hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings. Under optimum processing conditions, the HA coatings possess a nominal calcium/phosphorus ratio of 1.66 and exhibit a fully crystalline single phase structure. This deposition technique is based on the application of a pulsed excimer laser (wavelength λ = 248 nm, pulse duration t = 25 × 10 -9 sec) to ablate a dense stoichiometric HA
