Description

Semiconducting Silicon Nanowires for Biomedical Applications reviews the fabrication, properties and biomedical applications of this key material. Sections review basics, growth, characterization, biocompatibility, and surface modification of semiconducting. Chapters go on to focus on silicon nanowires for tissue engineering and delivery applications, including cellular binding and internalization, orthopedic tissue scaffolds, mediated differentiation of stem cells, and silicon nanoneedles for drug delivery. Finally, the book highlights the use of silicon nanowires for detection and sensing. These chapters explore the fabrication and use of semiconducting silicon nanowire arrays for high-throughput screening in the biosciences, neural cell pinning on surfaces, and probe-free platforms for biosensing.

This book provides a comprehensive resource for biomaterials scientists who are focused on biosensors, drug delivery and tissue engineering, but it is also ideal for researchers and developers in industry and academia who are concerned with nanoscale biomaterials, in particular electronically-responsive biomaterials.
