Tension Testing of Individual Collagen Fibrils

In a recent discussion it was suggested that it would be useful to perform tension tests on collagen fibrils. We have developed a MEMS-based experimental procedure that is capable of applying very large strains to individual collagen fibrils. The attached paper presents illustrative data; an upcoming paper will present much more data that illustrates the rich behavior of these fibrils during loading and unloading tests.
