Abstract

A novel method for fabricating anisotropic collagen membranes, which regulate the preferred orientation, is developed. The high-accuracy universal polarimeter (HAUP) method is used for simultaneous and quantitative evaluations of the optical anisotropy and optical activity. The evaluation of these optical quantities, enabled by the HAUP method, is beneficial to the field of tissue engineering.
