This week, I share an interview I did with Dr. Francesco Fornasiero of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory discussing some of their work in developing a material that could protect soldiers from biological and chemical agents.

The work includes fabricating flexible polymeric membranes with aligned carbon nanotube channels as moisture conductive pores. The size of these pores is 5,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair.

This material is the first key component of futuristic smart uniforms that also can respond to and protect soldiers and civilians from environmental chemical hazards.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has a mission of strengthening the United States’ security through the development and application of world-class science and technology to:

  • Enhance the nation’s defense.
  • Reduce the global threat from terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.
  • And respond with vision, quality, integrity and technical excellence to scientific issues of national importance.
