Advanced Functional Fibers and Fabrics
This technology enables the seamless integration of multiple functional components into one flexible fiber with precise control over nanometre-level architecture and composition, at fiber length, uniformity, and cost. This technology also allows an all-in-fiber solution, achieving multiple functionalities, offering a lego-like template to enable the integration of different components into a single flexible fiber. These new fibers and their multi-dimensional fabrics have the ability to see, hear, and sense their surroundings, communicate, store and convert energy, monitor health, control temperature, and many more. This technology also offers industry scale-up capabilities, with kilometer length from one fabrication, to accomplish high production yield and cost-effectiveness.
