Fiber Analysis and Characterization

100 million tons of fibers are produced globally each year. This includes natural fibers like cotton and wool, a wide variety of synthetic fibers, and even high-tech nanofibers created by electrospinning. Fibers can be woven into textiles or deposited as nonwoven sheets to make filters, insulation, envelopes, or disposable wipes.

Sophisticated analysis techniques are required to design advanced fiber products and to ensure their quality during manufacturing:
