Common material such as polyethylene used in plastic bags could be turned into something far more valuable through a process being developed at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory. In a paper published in Advanced Materials, a team led by Amit Naskar of the Materials Science and Technology Division outlined a method that allows not only for production of carbon fiber but also the ability to tailor the final product to specific applications. "Our results represent...

Fiberglass consists of numerous extremely fine fibers of glass. Although experimented with throughout history actual glass fibers were not mass produced until the invention of finer machine tooling. A dress with glass fibers was first worn in 1893 by stage actress Georgia Cayvan. Russell Games Slayter invented, in 1938, what is commonly known as fiberglass today. It is commonly used for insulation. Carbon fiber is also a somewhat similar but more expensive technology used in place of...
