Quantification of Bioparticulate Adhesion to Synthetic Carpet Polymers with Atomic Force Microscopy
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-09-08)
Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is adapted to the measurement of adhesion forces between indoor-air-pollutant bioparticulates and synthetic carpet fiber materials. This novel technology is used to characterize the adhesion ...
Characterization of bioparticulate adhesion to synthetic carpet polymers with atomic force microscopy
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-10-27)
Particles originating from bacteria, fungi (including mold spores, mildew, yeast), pollen, dust mites, and viruses can induce immune responses that trigger allergies and asthma. Carpeting is believed to act as a "sink" ...
