Artificial limbs help to restore normal function to amputees. Surface materials for prostheses need to look realistic, hold up to exposure, and mimic skin. ORNL scientists combined superhydrophobic polymer inventions with carbon nanotubes to create a self-cleaning skin-like surface material with the ability to transmit heat. This material provides an improved external covering for mechanical prost…

High Performance Anode Material Scientists at ORNL have developed a new nano-wire anode material that overcomes the limitations of similar anode materials that have poor capacity retention and/or high production cost. The ORNL material uses a low cost, low temperature, catalyst-free scalable process. The anode material consists of a vertically-aligned metal- core-shell nano-wire array. The amo…

Researchers at ORNL have developed a faster and more cost-effective method of oxidizing and stabilizing thermoplastic materials than is currently used in conventional carbon fiber production. This invention increases the rate of oxygen diffusion and chemical cross-linking of the polyacrylonitrile (PAN) precursor or other polymeric materials. The production of carbon fibers from polymeric material…
