Nanotechnology opens new avenues for textiles
he future is now. At least when it comes to
textiles that incorporate nanotechnology.
Researchers at the Joint School of Nanoscience
and Nanoengineering, at the University of North
Carolina Greensboro, are exploring ways to marry
nanomaterials to textiles. " We are very excited,
because it is our societal responsibility, as scientists,
to utilize our knowledge, expertise and technical
skills for the sake of satisfying the needs of society, "
says Dr. Tetyana Ignatova.
Ignatova's lab group concentrates on experimental
nanoscience of low-dimensional materials, focusing on
the physics of biosensing, spectroscopic intra-cellular
imaging, and nanofabrication for energy storage.
" We can incorporate nanotubes into fibers and make
T
antimicrobial or antiviral fabrics, and also functionalize
carbon nanotubes to become biosensors, " says
Ignatova. " That is what we will accomplish. We plan

to make it and test it, and we know how to test it. If
we can create clothes that help serve medicine and
health, it will be a new era of fashion. "
The virus and bacteria-resistant textiles idea isn't
just for human benefit. The chemicals that most
people currently use to discourage bacteria have
harmful effects on the health of the environment,
so using nanotechnology to create self-cleaning
surfaces would be of great environmental value.
Ignatova sees a potential future for the Greensboro
region in both textile technologies and functionalities,
especially with the recent donations of equipment
from lifestyle apparel company Kontoor Brands to
help their research. The equipment includes a stateof-the-art
yarn dyeing machine with the ability to
control sample temperature and amount, in addition
to an automated sampling loom that allows the ability
to boost material performance.
