Rodica Cristescu, Ion N. Mihailescu, Miroslav Jelinek, and Douglas B. Chrisey. Functionalized Thin Films and Structures Obtained by Novel Laser Processing Issues. In Rainer Kassing, Plamen Petkov, Wilhelm Kulisch, and Cyril Popov (eds.), Functionalized Properties of Nanostructured Materials, 223, pp. 211-226. NATO Science Series by Springer, Series II: Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry , 2006.

Abstract: We review the successful deposition of functionalized thin films of a wide range of biomaterials: natural polysaccharides and derivates, chemoselective polymers, structural proteins, adhesive proteins analogs, and enzymes by Matrix Assisted Pulsed-Laser Evaporation (MAPLE), and active proteins and living cells by Direct Write Matrix Assisted Pulsed-Laser Evaporation (MAPLE DW). We demonstrate that the deposited thin films and structures are identical to the starting material, preserving their chemical structure and very likely their functionality and biologic activity.

Keywords: Biomaterials; Organic Materials; Surface and Thin Films Functionalization; Matrix Assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation; Matrix Assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation Direct Write
