Baku. 13 July. REPORT.AZ / Engineers From the University of Cincinnati in partnership with the Wright–Patterson base of the US air force are developing an innovative fabric for clothes that can charge mobile gadgets, Report informs citing the Izvestia.
For the basis of the future fabric scientists took carbon nanotubes, which are "grown" on quartz silicon plates in a vacuum chamber.
Carbon nanotubes have high strength, excellent conductivity, high temperature resistance and have a large surface area.
For the military success of such developments means the replacement of heavy batteries, which are currently charging a growing number of electronics forming the load of soldier. For example-night vision devices and communication devices that arrange one third of the weight of the total equipment, the researchers note.
