Abstract:
Nanowing is plate of special material where propulsion force provided by different pressure of air on different sides of the plate, due to one-side nanosurface relief.

New nanomaterial

Russia | Posted on August 22nd, 2011

Our company is developing new product, it is advanced nanomaterial. The new material named Active Force Material AFM.

It is new business project presented by Mr. Alexander V. Frolov, Director of Faraday Company Ltd., Russia. It is planned to found a new company for the nanotech project.

Conception of this project use modern nanoscience surface engineering. It is planned to create new material providing active propulsion force due to different air pressure, acting on the different sides of the plate. Then, it is planned to organize sales of license and production of AFM ˆ Active Force Material. Innovation of the technology is possible in aerospace, ship building, auto car, power engineering industry.

Technical idea is simple: air molecules are moving. It is chaotical motion but using special relief of nanomaterial we can provide propulsion force and make machines work. There are few methods to get AFM effects. One method is micro relief with size elements about 50-500 nm on one surface of the plate.

This art of work can be made by nanotechnology experts, also in chip and semiconductor elements laboratories. So, we need nanotech partner in our new team.

How it works? Other understanding of the same technological task: we have to create two different sides of the plate, elastic and inelastic for interaction with air molecules. In this case there is non-zero summary force, acting in one direction. This force is result of difference (gradient) of air pressure.

Other analogy useful for understanding of the idea is "wing effect" invented by Prof. Jukowsky and Chaplygin in 1904, Russia. Any wing provide lifting force due to different pressure above and below of the wing. This difference in air pressure (the gradient of pressure) is result of difference in relative velocity between the wing and air. So, we have to create difference in relative velocity.

In proposed conception we plan to get the gradient of pressure for the case of immovable wing and stationary air, only thing is moving here are molecules of air. Velocity is very high but their motion is not ordered, it is chaotic. The idea is to use nanotechnology surface engineering to make their motion to be ordered and by this way to get gradient of air pressure.

Calculations let us see some real perspectives: for the first experimental level of the technology we can estimate 10% gradient of atmosphere pressure that is equivalent of 100 gram force acting onto 1 square cm. Plate made of AF- material of 1 square meter size will produce propulsion force equal to 1,000 kg. Propulsion unit made of 100 AFM plates can be placed in volume of 1 cubic meter and it can produce lifting force about 100,000 kg. It can be applied in aerospace industry. No fuel, no input power is necessary to make it work.

Main method is micro relief with size elements about 50-500 nm on one surface of the plate. This art of work can be made by nanotechnology experts, in chip and semiconductor elements laboratories. So, we need nanotech partner in our new team. We can create own nanotech laboratory in 2014 to develop the product.

The first demonstrable results can be small 50x50 mm plates of one-side relief matter, and we estimate to see 1 ˆ 2 kg propulsion active force effects for this material. No fuel, no input∑ The air atmospheric pressure can produce work. Demonstration of workable, i.e. flying in air plates made of AF - materials, will convince future investors and Customers to buy the technology. Application of the technology is aviation, transport, energy. Total size of market to sale licenses is 70 bil Euro.
