Technology Marketing Summary
Achieves true continuous scalable fabrication of magnetic nanofibers or nanotubes by integrating electrospinning with controlled nanofiber deposition orientation, fast IR heating and pneumatic collection of nanofiber/nanotubes.

 

Description

Achieves true continuous scalable fabrication of magnetic nanofibers or nanotubes by integrating electrospinning with controlled nanofiber deposition orientation, fast IR heating and pneumatic collection of nanofiber/nanotubes. It not only makes the production scalable, but also provides precise morphology control of the nanofiber/nanotubes. It can be easily switched between configurations to produce high quality nanofiber or nanotubes. Currently this system provides reliable feeding stocks of high quality magnetic nanofibers for our antenna substrate project and high quality magnetic nanotubes for our water filtration membrane projects (another invention disclosure on this application).

Benefits
  • Choose between Nanofibers and Nanotube Production
  • Fast IR Heating
  • Fast Pneumatic Collection of Nanofibers and Nanotubes
