SEM Lab, Inc. can perform analysis, identification and characterization of a wide variety of fibers. Materials such as fabrics and hair can be examined for structure, weave and/or size.
Below are some examples of fiber analysis.
Fiber images can be used to measure the diameter of the fibers, which is important for grading of cashmere.
Examples of optical and BSE SEM images of animal fiber are shown below. The high resolution of BSE SEM images is ideal for measurement of the fiber diameter.
