Speaker(s): Professor Maria Helena Godinho, Universidade Nova de Lisboa
The structures of liquid crystal droplets, pierced by microfilaments, are very sensitive to small variations of the threads morphologies . Studying the surface morphologies of filaments, with diameters of the order of micrometers, in particular natural fibres, is essential to the understanding of the relationship between their structure/properties. This work describes a simple way for surface detection of various fibres as well as non-woven membranes.
