Latest Nanofiber Stories
Discovery has potential applications in tissue regeneration and high-performance textiles.
Offering increased control and higher output, device could be a boon for industrial applications, from biocompatible materials to air filters.
In research that gives literal meaning to the term "power suit," University of California, Berkeley, engineers have created energy-scavenging nanofibers that could one day be woven into clothing and textiles.
Nanofiber-based lighting technology provides high-efficiency, environmentally friendly lighting RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Feb.
A team of researchers from the University of Vigo, Rutgers University in the United States and Imperial College London, in the United Kingdom, has developed "laser spinning", a novel method of producing glass nanofibers with materials.
In his office, MIT Professor of Chemical Engineering Gregory Rutledge keeps a small piece of fabric that at first glance resembles a Kleenex.
The Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution has concluded that urgent regulatory action is needed on nano-scale materials widely used in industry.
New U.S. research suggests environmental gains derived from the use of nanomaterials might be partly offset by the processes used to manufacture them.
By Zhang, Y Z Lim, C T The last decade has seen significant progress in the production of nanoflbers by electrospinning. One of the major drivers to this progress is the potential use ofnanofibrous structures as scaffolds for engineering tissues in regenerative medicine.
The continuous fabrication of complex, three-dimensional nanoscale structures and the ability to grow individual nanowires of unlimited length are now possible with a process developed by researchers at the University of Illinois.
