Amirkabir Univ. of Technology launches electrospining lab

TEHRAN, Jan. 06 (MNA) – Amir Kabir University of Technology has launched an electronic lab of nanofibers and their applications in lithium batteries, solar cells, and medicine.

The Textile Engineering Department of the University established and launched operation of Electrospining of Nanofibrous Structures Lab.

The majority of equipment and facilities of the lab is product of student research projects; the lab was housed in a new building and equipped with new facilities and technology thanks to the good offices of the professors of the department and contributions of the presidential deputy of science and technology’s Nanotechnology Initiative Council.

About 30 graduate research students work in the lab to advance their projects. The lab has hosted several research projects including polymeric, metal, and ceramic nanofibers and applications, nanotubes, and nanofibrous nanocomposites.

The laboratory seeks to serve the students with their course work and research and other industries and universities with highly expert teaching staff and other expert researchers, and advanced technology and facilities.

The electrospining is the most important module of producing fibers; nanofibers have wide applications in different industries due to their special structure and high area to volume ration which provides them with increased surface to interact with their environment; nanofibers are used in energy saving and restoring equipments such as lithium cells, solar cells, piezoelectric materials, and other medical and engineering applications such as tissue engineering, drug-delivery, healing skin scars, gas and fluid filters, and other biosensors.
