- a threadlike structure (as a chainlike series of cells)
- the stalk of a stamen
- a very slender natural or synthetic fiber
- a thin wire (usually tungsten) that is heated white hot by the passage of an electric current
When the electric current is turned on, it ignites the tungsten filaments in the bulb.
"Composed of filaments or plates of cells, a thallus ranges in size from a single-celled structure to a complex treelike form."
" Look, the threads are as thin as silkworm filaments and they come in at least several dozen colors. "
Any threadlike fiber or filament,such as a myofibril or neurofibril,that is a constituent of a cell or larger structure.
High tenacity yarn (other than sewg thread),of polyester filaments, not put up
Textured yarn nes, of artificial filaments, not put up for retail sale
Originally Edison used platinum alloys for the filament, in the belief that carbon was impracticable.
As the twist is removed, the filaments kink or crimp sinusoidally because of the distortion resulting from the presence of the heat - set twist.
Uniformity of pick- spacing is most important in weaving man- made continuous filament yarns, which are the most uniform of all.
Yarn of artificial filaments, multiple, nes, not put up
