Conductive Nanofiber Composite Fabric Biosensor and Method for its Fabrication
This biosensor provides a means for rapid, sensitive, and specific detection of bacterial strains at the point of care. It is capable of detecting pathogenic bacteria through an impedance method by tracking the phase and magnitude response from a generated sinusoidal signal. Current approaches to infection assessment rely on imaging technologies or...

Computer-controlled embroidery design and stitching for Precision Control of Tensile Properties of woven textiles
Computer-controlled embroidery algorithms allow for custom design and control properties of fabrics and woven materials. Embroidery changes the mechanical properties of frabrics, depending on the strength, orientation, and distribution of stitches. The production of fabrics with multiple, distinct properties traditionally requires the assembly of layers...

Lignocellulose-Sulfur Composite Materials for Construction Applications
These composites chemically combine abundant agricultural and petrochemical wastes, allowing for practical reduction of inert wastes that can be used to either supplement or replace traditional construction materials. Approximately 7 million tons of waste sulfur and 5 million tons of waste lignocellulose are produced each year. Only a quarter of these...

Fiber Bundle Cartridges as Chemical Separation Media
Monolithic cartridges including a plurality of nominally aligned polymer fibers can be used as stationary phase materials for liquid chromatography separations. Bundles of fibers are packed together so as to form capillary channels between the fibers. Different polymer compositions permit the “chemical tuning” of the separation process....

Ultrahydrophobic Self-cleaning Materials & Surfaces
Many materials – fibers, metals, synthetics and textiles – can have improved performance with the ability to repel water and contaminants. This technology provides a process for the modification of material exteriors by the addition of nano-sized or micro-sized particles to create the “lotus effect” – a surface that inhibits...
