Electronic Fiber Offers Benefits for Wearable Computing

capFiber

Wearable computing has taken another step forward with a new fiber development coming from Huazhong University of Science and www.ncitech.co.uk Technology in China. The fiber is actually a tiny capacitor stretched into a flexible thread that can be woven into cloth. This offers interesting possibilities for energy storage and for sensors that can be woven into clothing.

By creating a simple rolled capacitor and then heating and extruding it, Professor Jian Feng Gu and his team have created a soft, flexible fiber that is between 0.5 and 1 millimeter (0.02 to 0.04 inches) in diameter that can be woven into cloth yet also has 1,000 times as much capacitance as a coaxial cable.

Used in conjunction with pizeoelectric energy generators (or a portable solar panel) energy to operate electronic devices could be stored in the cialis online in canada fibers. Sensors could be developed by combining these fibers with other inductor materials, which could lead to a variety of sensing circuits, as well.
