Measurement of Micro-Mechanics Property of Cell Wall by Nano-Indention
To investigate the micro-mechanics property of cucumber mesophyll cell wall, an experiment was conducted at nanolevel scale with the help of nanoindentation masurement system after the tissue of cucumber leaf has been treated of fixing,dehydrating,embedding,slicing for the mesophyll. Loading-unloading curve showed: the cell wall deformed elastically before the stress reach 1.0MPa, after that, the cell wall deformed plastically;It also can be seen in the range elastic deformation that the stress-strain is nonlinear relationship .
