• Elegant hierarchical fiber organization within the bamboo node

    10 days ago - By Phys

    In a study recently published in National Science Review, researchers used multiscale imaging techniques (including optical microscope, X-ray microscope , scanning electron microscope, and atomic force microscope, etc.) to scientifically characterize the fiber-based microstructure of the short bamboo node. Experiment results revealed that the bamboo node can be seen as one spatially heterostructured and hierarchical fiber-reinforced composite.
