New E-textiles “grown” in makeshift washing machine

Abstract:
As hundreds of companies worldwide pursue the flourishing multi-million dollar electronic textile (e-textile) marketplace, a new twist in the manufacturing process has been unveiled by NanoSonic, Inc., of Blacksburg, Va.

Twenty-seven year-old materials engineer Andrea Hill and her colleagues, Jennifer Lalli and Rick Claus, are "growing" their novel, electrically conductive textiles in a make-shift washing machine, incorporating their trademarked material Metal Rubber™ as an integral component.

"We can spin gold and silver into flexible fabrics and they are electrically conductive and nearly transparent," Claus, Virginia's Outstanding Scientist for 2001 and a professor of engineering at Virginia Tech, says.

The new nanotextiles could be used for a number of applications including as a shield for potentially harmful and disruptive radio frequency (RF) radiation.
