Abstract:We generated self-organized, grating-like structures on the surface of polyethylene-terephthalate by ArF excimer laser ablation. Tilting the polymer films with angles larger than 60°, we got parallel grooves. The surface changes caused by the laser illumination were qualified by AFM. The period of the structures was approximately 1 μm, which is commensurable with the characteristic size of melanocytes. We examined the cell shape of normal epidermal melanocytes (M-C) and of melanocytes from the skin of one neur…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
