Within my research I am going to develop a new biomaterial (calcium phosphates doped with ions of say, cerium and erbium oxides, fluoride and aluminum (3+) ions) with antibacterial properties which will be densified and bonded on the tooth surface after the irradiation with an ultrafast pulsed laser (femtosecond laser).
