    Abstract

    Scanning electron microscopy or transmission electron microscopy had been used for the researches on human hairs to date, while they are only applicable in vacuum condition. Thus,little information had been reported about the structures and physical properties of hair under our living environment. Therefore, in this research, we investigated the influence of humidity on the ultrastructures and physical properties of human hair hairs using environment-control AFM.
