Contents Bioactivity and biointegration of orthopaedic and dental implants -- Surface modification of biomaterials -- Wettability in biomaterials science and modification techniques -- CO2 laser modification of the wettability characteristics of magnesia partially stabilised zirconia -- In vitro biocompatibility evaluation of CO2 laser treated magnesia partially stabilised zirconia -- The effects of CO2 laser radiation on the wettability characteristics of a titanium alloy -- In vitro biocompatibility evaluation of CO2 laser treated titanium alloy -- Enquiry into the possible generic effects of the CO2 laser treatment on bone implant biomaterials
Summary "Laser Surface Treatment of Bio-Implant Materials is rare in providing a reference source that describes specifically a mechanical engineering solution to a biotechnology problem. It serves as both a practitioner guide and a medium to high-level reference text book, and as such is a reference source for the engineer practising in or looking to move into the biomaterials field, undergraduate and post graduate students and those conducting bio-related research in either academia or industry. It will prove useful to mechanical engineers, biotechnologists, biomechanical engineers, metallurgists, clinicians and even surgeons."--Jacket
