UH at the forefront of nanotechnology

Abstract:
There is a surfboard that is nearly unbreakable. It would probably have to be slammed into a wall to even ding it.

There is a brush tinier than a human hair — so small, in fact, that it can clean particles out of water, and enter the smallest blood vessel.

There is a material that can protect from electromagnetic interference and absorb a lightning strike — a material 10 times lighter than steel yet 250 times stronger.
