Functional Nanofibers Lab

The Functional Nanofibers Laboratory is capable of producing nanofibers of polymers, carbons, ceramics, and composites. The fibers we can produce include but are not limited to solid, porous, core-sheath, and hollow nanofibers. The lab is also equipped with a wide range of equipment that enables us to develop and evaluate nanofiber properties for various applications such as advanced batteries and fuel cells, chemical and biological protection, and functional textiles.
