Abstract:
Professors at the university have developed a tensile tester for a single nanofiber. All other tensile testers only test multiple strands at one time.

New single nano fiber tensile tester

Urbana-Champaign, IL | Posted on June 16th, 2008

The University of Illinois Urbana Champaign has developed a novel testing device for understanding the tensile properties of single nanofibers. In addition to the ability to test single nanofibers, the technology allows for testing in virtually any loading range and temperature.

"A technology whose time has come," states a leading research university on nanofiber technology. With the anticipated growth of the nanofiber market, researchers now have tools designed specifically for the study of nanofiber properties.

The device was developed in response to the lack of materials testing equipment for the nano industry. The University of Illinois innovation will help increase and improve applications of nanofiber technology.

The University of Illinois now seeks to collaborate with private sector companies in order to introduce the technology in the materials testing market.
