Tailoring surfaces : modifying surface composition and structure for applications in tribology, biology and catalysis /

The focus of this book is surface modification, with the goal of tailoring materials for a specific application. By means of this approach, ideal bulk properties of a material, such as its tensile strength (temperature stability, density, or even cost) can be combined with optimized surface properti...
