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.

Yoshiki Oshida

The ultimate success for placed implants in both dental and medical practice relies on the early stage of osteo-integration (fusing and integrating of placed non-vital implant surface to receiving vital hard tissue - bone structure). This new book explains the three basic requirements for implant success from a surface engineering perspective:

One of the ways of making drug delivery more efficient is the use of nanosystems for targeted delivery and timed release. This new monograph in the ASME-Momentum Press series on Biomedical & Nanomedical Technologies will explore the latest research on nanoparticulate delivery systems for the immune modulating agent, GMDP (N-acetylglucosaminyl-N-acetylmuramyl-Lisoglutamine), an important component in cell wall structure and receptors. Silica nanoparticles in particular have shown great promise in enhanced delivery of drugs targeted at this cellular wall component.

Because of their biocompatibility and desirable mechanical properties, chitosan along with other materials like hydroxyapatite and polycaprolactone have been studied and used as tor create engineered matrices--'scaffolds'--for artificially growing tissue for medical uses in tissue and organ repair. This new monograph in the ASME-Momentum Press series on Biomedical and Nanomedical Technologies, will discuss the latest uses of computer-aided technologies for designing such scaffolds and performing characterization to create desired mechanical and physical properties.

Tubular combustors are cylindrical tubes where flame ignition and propagation occur in a spatially confined, highly controlled environment, in a nearly flat, elongated geometry. This allows for some unique advantages where extremely even heat dispersion is required over a large surface while still maintaining fuel efficiency. Tubular combustors also allow for easy flexibility in type of fuel source, allowing for quick changeover to meet various needs and changing fuel pricing.

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.
