"Sub-micron X-ray Beam Sheds New Light on the Hair Local Structure"

Presented by Vesna Stanic

Friday, July 24, 2015, 4:00 pm — Physics Dept. Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The structure of human hair has been extensively studied over the last 70 years. However, its detailed structure has proven to be elusive. Dr. Stanic, a scientist at LNLS - Brazil, and Dr. Evans-Lutterodt, a scientist at Brookhaven Lab's NSLS II, used very small beams of x-ray light, a fraction of a single hair diameter, to image the detailed structure of human hair. These results may lead to the development of new and better hair products.
