Finnish researcher uses eye imaging technology to develop microcellulose opportunities

August 7, 2019 |

In Finland, a doctoral student used optical coherence tomography, an imaging technology commonly used in medical imaging of eye, to research the flow properties of aqueous microcellulose suspensions. The measurement methods developed in the doctoral thesis can also be utilized in developing the material properties of microfibrillated celluloses, e.g in textile innovations.

Microfibrillated cellulose is made by grinding cellulose fibers into a finely divided material in the micrometer range. An even finer material of microfibrillated cellulose is nanofibrillated cellulose. With various processing techniques, micro- and nanofibrillated cellulose can be made into both very hard and flexible, transparent and translucent materials.
