By Stephen Saddow Ph.D

Silicon Carbide Biotechnology: A Biocompatible Semiconductor for complicated Biomedical units and purposes, moment version, provides the most recent details in this wide-band-gap semiconductor fabric that the physique doesn't reject as a overseas (i.e., no longer natural) fabric and its capability to extra strengthen biomedical purposes.

SiC units provide excessive strength densities and occasional power losses, permitting lighter, extra compact, and better potency items for biocompatible and long term in vivo functions, together with middle stent coatings, bone implant scaffolds, neurological implants and sensors, glucose sensors, brain-machine-interface units, shrewdpermanent bone implants, and organ implants.

This e-book offers the fabrics and biomedical engineering groups with a seminal reference ebook on SiC for constructing know-how, and is a source for practitioners wanting to establish and enforce complex engineering ideas to their daily scientific difficulties for which they at the moment lack long term, reasonably-priced solutions.

  • Discusses the homes, processing, characterization, and alertness of silicon carbide biomedical fabrics and comparable technology
  • Assesses literature, patents, and FDA approvals for medical trials, permitting fast assimilation of knowledge from present disparate resources and selling the transition from know-how R&D, to medical trials
  • Includes extra on functions and units, resembling SiC nanowires, biofunctionalized units, micro-electrode arrays, center stent/cardiovascular coatings, and non-stop glucose sensors, during this new edition
