MM-409: BIOMEDICAL AND FUNCTIONAL MATERIALS
Introduction to biomaterials, Basic physical and chemical properties of biomaterials, including metals, ceramics, and polymers, as they are related to their manipulation by the engineer for incorporation into living system. Introduction to the interactions between proteins, cells and surfaces of biomaterials. Surface chemistry and physics of selected metals, polymers and ceramics, modification of biomaterials surfaces, and surface characterization methodology; Role of microstructure properties in the choice of biomaterials and design of artificial organs, implants, and prostheses. Application of magnetic materials. Surface coatings Biomaterials, Topics in biosensors, drug delivery and tissue engineering.
Introduction to Functional materials: To gain deep knowledge about materials which are not primarily used for their mechanical properties but for other properties such as physical. To know what "functions" can be built into the materials and how to maximise their performance.
Specific properties of functional materials are covered, which are used in high-tech applications. Shape memory metals, Invar alloys, Magnetic material, Electric contact material, Conducting thermoplastics and polymer composites,
