Abstract in different language: Metallic biomaterials are widely used in medicine. However, the material used for biomedical applications shall comply with the following factors: biotolerance, corrosion resistance and mechanical properties [1]. Magnesium alloys have been recently investigated as potential candidates for orthopedic implants because of good mechanical properties [2]. Nevertheless, magnesium, as a major mineral in human body, is characterized by poor corrosion resistance. Therefore, various protective coatings are used to slow down the corrosion process [3]. The article presents the investigation results of a structure and properties of TiO2 thin films (about 300 nm thick) deposited onto MgCa4Zn1Gd1 alloy using sol-gel and magnetron sputtering methods. The structure observations of thin oxide films in scanning electron microscopy (SEM) are shown. The phase analysis was made with X-ray diffractometer. The structural studies were confirmed by Raman spectrometer. Moreover, roughness measurements in atomic force microscopy (AFM) are discussed. The results of corrosion resistance of TiO2 films using the potentiodynamic and immersion tests are also presented. The analysis of investigation results has shown that the surface of TiO2 applied by magnetron sputtering is characterized by smaller and more uniform grains compared to the TiO2 film deposited by sol-gel. The results of structural testing determined the structure of TiO2 thin films as an anatase. The sol-gel coated film has slightly higher roughness parameters (Ra = 11.2 nm; RMS = 15.1 nm) compared to the layer applied using PVD (Ra = 7.1 nm; RMS = 9.2 nm). The immersion test results have shown that the alloy with TiO2 film applied by sol-gel is more corrosion resistant
