             New textile materials that are both electrically conductive and flexible and breathable pave the way for comfortable, high-tech clothing. The aim is to supply power to wearables and support fitness sensors.
            

        

        Conductive nonwovens allow for comfortable clothing, flexible and breathable, as well as portable electronic devices that can support wearables. For example, a suit with solar cells could directly supply smart devices and sensors with power. Researchers at the University of Bayreuth, Donghua University in Shanghai and Nanjing Forestry University have just developed and introduced such nonwovens.

    The scientists have not pulled metal wires into already finished textiles, but instead modified the classic electrospinning, which has been used to produce nonwovens for years. Short spun polymer fibers and small amounts of tiny silver wires with diameters as small as 80 nm are mixed in a liquid, filtered off, dried and heated. The resulting stable web has in some cases demonstrated very high electrical conductivity. In addition, these substances are permeable to air, which accommodates natural skin respiration.
Such garments could not only charge smartphones, data glasses or other wearables about the fabric. Sensors incorporated into the fabric could directly transmit important fitness and health information.
The new textiles can also be used for fittings and car seats or in airplanes, explains Prof. Dr. med. Andreas Greiner, from the University of Bayreuth. In recent research, the new nonwoven fabric will also be tried out as an electrode in microbial fuel cells.
