SAN FRANCISCO， Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- Researchers at Stanford University have engineered a low-cost， plastic-based textile that， if woven into clothing， could become the basis for garments that keep people cool in hot climates without air conditioning.
In addition to letting perspiration evaporate through the material， something ordinary fabrics already do， the new textile cools human body by providing a revolutionary cooling mechanism: allowing heat that the body emits as infrared radiation to pass through the plastic textile.
Wearers of the textile， known as nanoporous polyethylene (nanoPE)， show skin temperature about 4 degrees Fahrenheit， or 2.2 degrees Celsius， lower than when they are covered with cotton.
"If you can cool the person rather than the building where they work or live， that will save energy，" said Yi Cui， an associate professor of materials science and engineering at Stanford and of photon science at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory， and one of the authors of a paper in the September 2 issue of the journal Science.
The work is based on understanding that all objects， including our bodies， throw off heat in the form of infrared radiation， an invisible and benign wavelength of light. Blankets warm us by trapping infrared heat emissions close to the body.
"Forty to 60 percent of our body heat is dissipated as infrared radiation when we are sitting in an office，" explained Shanhui Fan， a professor of electrical engineering who specializes in photonics， which is the study of visible and invisible light.
"But until now there has been little or no research on designing the thermal radiation characteristics of textiles."
The researchers blended nanotechnology， photonics and chemistry to give polyethylene， namely the clear， clingy plastic we use as kitchen wrap， a number of characteristics desirable in clothing material: it allows thermal radiation， air and water vapor to pass right through， and it is opaque to visible light.
First， they found a variant of polyethylene commonly used in battery making that has a specific nanostructure that is opaque to visible light yet is transparent to infrared radiation. Then， they modified the industrial polyethylene by treating it with benign chemicals to enable water vapor molecules to evaporate through nanopores， allowing the plastic to breathe like a natural fiber.
To make the thin material more fabric-like， they created a three-ply version: two sheets of treated polyethylene separated by a cotton mesh for strength and thickness. And to test the cooling potential of the construct versus a cotton fabric of comparable thickness， they placed a small swatch of each material on a surface that was as warm as bare skin and measured how much heat each material trapped. The comparison showed that the cotton fabric made the skin surface 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit， or 2 degrees Celsius， warmer than their cooling textile.
Noting that this difference means a person dressed in their new material might feel less inclined to turn on a fan or air conditioner， the researchers are continuing their work on several fronts， including adding more colors， textures and cloth-like characteristics to their material.
Fan believes that the research opens up new avenues of inquiry to cool or heat things， passively， without the use of outside energy， by tuning materials to dissipate or trap infrared radiation.
"In hindsight， some of what we've done looks very simple， but it' s because few have really been looking at engineering the radiation characteristics of textiles，" he said.
Cellular Phone: From the Origin to Our Days Published: 24.10.2009 | Author: phonescards | Category: Mobile Phones
Cellular telephone is the most prevalent modern invention among people all over the globe. But nobody can tell you for sure Authentic Jacquizz Rodgers Jersey , who is the inventor of the first cellular telephone. The history of the creation of the first cellular devices takes its root from the midst of XX century.
Right that time the firm AT&T (the corporation that also proposes phone cards in United States), or rather Bell Laboratories Authentic Patrick Murray Jersey , firstly proposed to make a mobile telephone. It was rather audacious idea for 1947, but the developers confined themselves initially to the idea of phone appointed only for installation in a cars. They come across the problem of great mass of phones at that time (near 30-40-kg) Authentic Chris Baker Jersey , and it was inconveniently to utilize such aggregate.
The inventors endeavoured to find the decision of the problem of great weight of phones in 1950-s. And in 1970 the telephones lost a plenty of their weight and their mass was near twelve kilograms, while the energy unit still utilized embedded net of a vehicle . During those years Authentic T.J. Ward Jersey , Motorola was best-known for its compact radio transmitters and didn’t consider about cell telephones at all.
In 1954 Martin Cooper, fresh developer of Motorola Authentic Ali Marpet Jersey , began a modern century of portable mobile telephones. His major task was the desing of modern portable devices. In 1967 Martin and his department created earliest handheld radio expressly ordered by Chicago police. After service for Motorola for nearly twenty years Martin realized his capability to invent a little mobile telephone.
Martin made progress in projecting of the first cellular phone in a year. Private establishments had to show people modern wireless decision of telecommunication, that is why Motorola pressed Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for gratuitous frequencies. They felt doubt about the enterpriseses’ demand of frequencies Authentic Donovan Smith Jersey , mainly because of the specialists of the big and well-known Bell Laboratories, who had uncertainties as to the making of such compact telephones in the nearest futurity. However they found a decision Authentic Noah Spence Jersey , which was for Motorola to become the firm that would bring the new nets in.
