Processing of Piezoelectric Silk Films and Examination of Stability of Piezoelectric Effect.

Martinick, Kathleen.

Abstract: Finding biocompatible and biodegradable substrates for biomedical engineering applications continues to be a major focus today. Bombyx mori silk has received attention as a useful biopolymer for its remarkable mechanical properties, biocompatibility and the high level of control over degradation rates; moreover, the degradation products are amino acids the body can reuse. It has been fou... read more
