This review volume consists of a collection of articles, written by renowned scientists from different countries, on biomimetism and materials science. It starts with a detailed explanation of the four typical, useful properties of biological surfaces — the shark skin effect (anti-friction surfaces), the lotus effect (self-cleaning or anti-adhesive surfaces), the gecko effect (dry adhesive surfaces) and the moth eye effect (anti-reflective surfaces) — and shows their extended application in technology. Different microscopy techniques used for characterizing these technological useful biological surfaces such as scanning electron microscopy, environmental scanning electron microscopy, confocal laser scanning microscopy and atomic force microscopy, are discussed in the following chapters. Then, several methods such as laser metallurgy, electrodeposition and plasma-based processes, which are used for modifying the topography and composition of material surfaces to obtain specific functional properties with technological applications, are demonstrated.

Review:

This book written by and for scientists and engineers of complementary specialties is recommended to scientists in the field, newcomers from different areas and graduate students. The book explores in a very attractive simple way how the current knowledge of biological structures occurring on the surfaces of living species can be transferred to develop new functional materials. --Hans Jörg Mathieu, Prof Dr em, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland

This book written by and for scientists and engineers of complementary specialties is recommended to scientists in the field, newcomers from different areas and graduate students. --Prof Dr em Hans Jörg Mathieu, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland

The book surveys an equally remarkable range of techniques for observing, manipulating, and quantifying the behavior of surfaces. In short, it is a book to be read to broaden one's appreciation of the range of relevant phenomena and then kept close at hand when a person plunges into a project. --Steven Vogel, Professor Emeritus, Duke University, USA

The authors of the individual chapters are well-respected scientists in the field of biological or biomimetic surfaces and the book represents valuable source of information for both students and scientists exploring this research field as well as experts looking for a comprehensive overview. --Prof Dr Christoph Neinhuis, Technische Universität Dresden

Book Description World Scientific Publishing Co Pte Ltd, Singapore, 2009. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Many good books have been written recently on this new field called biomimetics or bionics, but few exploring simultaneously the characterization and technological processes to produce man-made surfaces with similar properties as the biological ones. Bio-inspired surface structures offer significant commercial potential for the creation of antireflective, self-cleaning and drag reducing surfaces, as well as new types of adhesive systems. This review volume explores how the current knowledge of the biological structures occurring on the surface of moth eyes, leaves, sharkskin, and the feet of reptiles can be transferred to functional technological materials. It analyses how such surfaces can be described and characterized using microscopic techniques and thus reproduced. It also encompasses the important areas of current surface replication techniques and the associated acquisition of good master structures.The book is divided in three sections: an introduction of the skin functions and four functional properties of biological surfaces; physical, chemical and microscopy techniques for describing and characterizing the surfaces; and replication techniques for modifying non-natural surfaces.
