One Line Description
The book provides a comprehensive review of cutting-edge research on materials interfaces and technologies in such areas as bioelectronics, biosensors, engineering, and nanosystems.

Audience
A broad spectrum of scientists, researchers, and technologists in colloidal and interfaces research working both in academia and industry will find this book to be invaluable. The book can also be used as a post-graduate and undergraduate text on a wide variety of courses on materials processing, properties and applications.

Description
Advanced Material Interfaces is a state-of-the-art look at innovative methodologies and strategies adopted for interfaces and their applications. Interfaces are the key controller in nearly all advanced devices. In a wide spectrum of applications, from chemical catalysis to the Mars rover Opportunity, advancement is conducted by an elegance of our scientific understanding of manifold interfaces. The 13 chapters in the book focus on two key aspects: The design, fabrication and properties of advanced materials interfaces; and the fundamentals and frontiers of relevant functional interfaces. Written by eminent researchers, the chapters not only elaborate complex interfaces fashioned of solids, liquids, and gases, but also incorporate cross-disciplinary mixture and blends of physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering and life sciences. Together, they show how newly-discovered fundamental constituents and interfacial progressions can be materialized and used for precise purposes.
