Combining wood fibers and spider silk for new materials

A combination of wood fibers and spider silk could create a new type of material that can rival plastic in terms of versatility but without the negative impact upon the environment, new research shows.

Moth fibers inspire air-conditioned fabrics

Researchers have developed a new fabric, described as ‘air conditioned’, by copying the intricate patterns of silk produced from moth larvae. The fabric will be the basis of new, cooler clothing.

Graphene is composed of nano fibers

Researchers studying graphene’s properties have used a new mathematical framework to make extremely accurate characterizations of the two-dimensional material’s shape. They have concluded the material is composed of nano-fibers.

Nanotech used to produce silk

Engineers have demonstrated that it is possible to generate nanostructures from silk in an environmentally friendly process.

Hagfish slime provides new source of fibers

The eel-like hagfish, which oozes out slime, might be the source of superior new fibers for parachutes, packaging and possibly clothing, according to a new study.
