Thermally Conductive Polymers Improve Nanofibers
Stretching polyethylene at the nanoscale results in a more “ideal” single-crystalline fiber, which dramatically boosts its level of thermal conductivity to that of pure metals such as platinum, iron, and nickel. This could revolutionize manufacturing because PE is electrically insulating, lighter weight, and less expensive than metal.
A new generation of electronic devices is emerging as a result of recent advances in research involving two-dimensional nanomaterials, including graphene and Molybdenum disulfide.
Researchers at MIT have found a way to build tissues with silicon nano wire sensors. The wires are woven into a sponge-like polymer mesh, which is then seeded with cells.
