Before-and-after AFM imaging: Returning to the same area on a hair fibre
What is it about?
This paper describes a method whereby a human hair can be imaged using atomic force microscopy (AFM) and then the hair removed, placed in a tress of hair, chemically/cosmetically treated and then the same hair removed and the same location imaged.
Why is it important?
This technique allows the desirable 'before-and-after' imaging - important in many applications, but described here for AFM imaging of hair.
