Dataset description

This dataset contains the raw and meta data for the publication: Universality of Hair as a Nucleant: Exploring the Effects of Surface Chemistry and Topography.

This includes atomic force microscopy, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and scanning ion conductance microscopy data for the characterisation of hair samples that were used in crystallization experiments to study the effect of topography, surface charge, and surface chemistry on the nucleating ability of different hair types. A simulation model was developed for the quantitative interpretation of scanning ion conductance microscopy data, which has been included as a COMSOL report that includes all the information on the simulations. The scanning electron microscopy images were used to visualize the distribution of CaCO3 crystals grown on different hair surfaces. The metadata for finding the activity of hairs are categorized, where it was recorded whether or not nucleation occurred during contact. In situ synchrotron WAXS analysis of KNO3 crystallization was carried out in levitated droplets to learn why the formation of α-KNO3 was suppressed in our silicon oil-bound droplet-based experiments
