Diffuse Scattering—the use of off-specular X-Rays and neutrons from surfaces and interfaces—has grown rapidly as a tool for characterizing the surface properties of materials and related fundamental structural properties. It has proven to be especially useful in the understanding of local properties within materials. This new book reflects the efforts of physicists and materials scientists around the world who have helped to refine the techniques and applications of diffuse scattering.

The Fullerene molecule is a carbon-based nano-scale structure of 60 carbon atoms arranged in a 3-dimensional soccer ball- like sphere. It is highly stable, but it can be modified with functional groups for desired biological activity. This new monograph in the ASME-Momentum Press series on Biomedical & Nanomedical Technologies will explore the basic physics and chemistry of Fullerenes, how the Fullerene molecule can be chemically modified with bio-active moieties, and then how it can be applied in clinical use. Examples of antimicrobial and anti-cancer uses will be discussed.
