One Line Description
The book offers a comprehensive state-of–the-art review of the advances in surface engineering materials science and technology.

This book is written for readers from diverse backgrounds across the fields of chemistry, physics, materials science and engineering, medical science, environmental, bio- and nanotechnologies, and biomedical engineering.

With the increasingly deep integration of current and emerging surface engineering technologies for new materials exploration, the last decade has witnessed an inspiring growth in research activities involving multidisciplinary knowledge innovation.
Advanced Surface Engineering Materials contains 14 detailed and up-to-date chapters on
functional coatings and adhesives, engineering of nanosurfaces, high-tech surface materials, characterization and new applications. With such a book in hand, one can easily figure out the methodology and essential rationales underlying every aspect of material innovations from bio-inspired coating or polymer films to biosynthesis of nanomaterials and graphene, from carbon structures growth to deep-blue organic light-emitting diodes, or from latent biosensor application to high efficiency devices assembly and the topic can be extended even to the modulation of enzymes or the assessment of plasma-material interactions for process safety.
Some of the subject covered in this unique book include:
• Bio-inspired coatings and adhesives • Femtosecond laser texturing of bio-based polymer films for surface functionalization • Engineered electromagnetic surfaces and their applications • Biosynthesis of metal nanoparticles and graphene • Nano-assisted functional modulation of enzymes • Electrospun fibers based on biopolymers
• Deep-blue organic light-emitting diodes • From fluorophores to phosphors for highefficiency devices • Advanced titanium surfaces and its alloys for orthopedic and dental applications based on digital SEM imaging analysis.
