NMSU creating plastic coatings that give planes special powers

Abstract:
Plastic is rising to new heights. Literally. Since April, a New Mexico State University physicist has been leading a team of graduate students and post-doctoral scholars to make aircraft harder to see or reduce static, corrosion or heat. To do these things, they are developing thin plastic aircraft coatings with nanotechnology, which involves working on an atomic or molecular level.
The products could have military and commercial applications and extend beyond the aircraft field. For instance, telecommunications could use the anti-static coating.
