Surgical Adhesives & Sealants: Current Technology and Applications

1st Edition

David H. Sierra, Renato Saltz
March 31, 1998

From the PrefaceSurgical tissue adhesives are an ancient idea, going back to the beginnings of recorded history. The concept of adhering, rather than suturing, packing, or stapling planes of tissue is attractive, in that it is fast-acting and assures complete closure. Numerous technologies have...

Poled Polymers and Their Applications to SHG and EO Devices

1st Edition

Seizo Miyata, Hiroyuki Sasabe
October 28, 1997

Poled polymers doped with nonlinear optically active chromophores combine the large second order nonlinearity of the dopant dye molecules with the optical quality of the polymer. The material design flexibility afforded to doped polymers makes them attractive in a large variety of devices and...

Manufacturing of Polymer Composites

1st Edition

B. Tomas Astrom
September 13, 1997

The potential application areas for polymer composites are vast. While techniques and methodologies for composites design are relatively well established, the knowledge and understanding of post-design issues lag far behind. This leads to designs and eventually composites with disappointing...
