AFM nanoindentation studies on hair

Project: Innovation


AFM consultancy work for Natura, Brazil. £3,300
This study used atomic force microscopy (AFM) nanoindentation measurements to investigate whether changes in cuticle hardness on single fibres occurred upon exposure to five cosmetic treatments. Ten fibres per treatment were investigated and force verses distance curves were obtained from 25 regions on each hair surface.
