Spinning high-strength polymer nanofibers
It's no coincidence then that when Sheng Shen talks about his work with polymer nanofibers he compares it to a spider spinning its web. Shen and his team have developed a polymer nanofiber that is strong, lightweight, thermally conductive, electrically insulating and bio-compatible. They accomplished all of this in a single polymer fiber strand measuring less than 100 nanometers. According to Shen, the potential impact of this development is tremendous. The characteristics of his polymer nanofiber give it application in aerospace and automotive systems, civil and structural engineering, medical devices and robotics.
