University now seeks partners to implement and commercialize the technology
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed a novel testing device for conducting tensile testing of single nanofibers. Instead of measuring the fiber motion from photographs, the motion of large parts of the test platform is calculated using a digital image correlation algorithm. The application of the algorithm is a new approach to studying materials properties.
The nanofiber testing device can be used in many applications including nanofiber and polymer nanofiber testing, nanocomposite materials testing, synthetic collagen fibrils testing, and small fiber testing of any type. Several major polymer and nanofiber companies have shown interest in the device.
"A novel device with wide application," states an executive at a leading polymer manufacturing company, "the ability to understand the mechanical properties of nanofibers is highly valuable to companies". The technology is both a new product and a new method and US and International Patent Applications have been filed. The University seeks private company partners to help commercialize the technology.
