Advanced Functional Fibres and Fabrics

Technology Overview

This technology enables the seamless integration of multiple of functional components into one flexible fibre with precise control over nanometre-level architecture and composition, at fibre length, uniformity, and cost. This technology also allows an all-in-fibre solution, achieving multiple functionalities, offering a lego-like template to enable the integration of different components into a single flexible fiber. These new fibres 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 kilometre length from one fabrication, to accomplish high production yield and cost effectiveness.
