Abstract

Properties of the solids are very important for the biomaterials field because all biomaterials including metals, ceramics, and the very soft ones like hydrogels used in contact lenses, cell printing, or tissue engineering applications are solids. Soft biomaterials also need to be studied like the less hydrated and much harder biomaterials such as pyrolytic carbon used in the heart valves or hydroxyapatite of bone-like implants.
