Reliable laser fabrication: the quest for responsive biomaterials surface

Abstract

Laser techniques have been traditionally used for material processing. Currently, there is growing recognition that lasers as a reliable fabrication tool can tailor biomaterials surface for tissue-engineering application. Here, we reviewed the use of selected lasers with a large-scale range of wavelength and pulse. We presented typical examples to illustrate the basic fabrication principles and significance of the laser fabrication in tailoring biomaterials surface with different geometric features. We also discussed the tissue-engineering application of laser-fabricated biomaterials, of which the biomaterials surface possessed promise of delivering physicochemical cues for the hard and soft tissue reconstruction.
