Measuring elasticity of wet cellulose fibres with AFM using indentation and a linearized Hertz model

Author affiliations

Abstract

The mechanical properties of different pulp fibres in liquid were measured using an atomic force microscope. Specifically a custom-made sample holder was used to indent the fibre surface, without causing any motion, and the Young's modulus was calculated from the indentation using a linearized Hertz model.
