First scalable graphene yarns for wearable textiles produced

Posted by in categories: particle physics, wearables

A team of researchers led by Dr. Nazmul Karim and Prof Sir Kostya Novoselov at The University of Manchester have developed a method to produce scalable graphene-based yarn.

Multi-functional wearable e-textiles have been a focus of much attention due to their great potential for healthcare, sportswear, fitness and aerospace applications.

Graphene has been considered a potentially good material for these types of applications due to its high conductivity, and flexibility. Every atom in is exposed to its environment allowing it to sense changes in its surroundings, making it an ideal material for sensors.
