Intersection: Wearable Nanotechnology
Imagine plugging your phone into your jacket to charge it up or recharging your electric car just by leaving it in a sunny parking lot.
Associate Professor Jayan Thomas teaches nanotechnology at the University of Central Florida. He is working on a filament that can store the energy of the sun and could one day be woven into clothing or coat the roof of a car.
To demonstrate how his project might work, Thomas had to learn how to use some old technology – a loom.
90.7’s Matthew Peddie visited Thomas in his lab at the UCF’s NanoScience Technology Center.
