Multilayer Photothermal Textile and Wearable for Thermoregulation

PRODUCT OPPORTUNITIES

  • Multilayer photothermal textile suitable for use in garments, apparel, upholstery, linens, and window treatments.
  • Personal heated wearables such as winter wear, advanced outerwear, jackets, shirts, pants, vests, gloves, hats, etc.

ADVANTAGES

  • Lightweight photothermal textiles enabling adaptive living indoors and outdoors
  • Lightweight personal heated wearables powered “wirelessly” by sunlight or indoor lighting
  • Highly efficient thermoregulation

TECHNOLOGY DESCRIPTION

This invention provides a nature-inspired, multilayer photothermal textile and personal heated wearables, such as clothing, comprising such textile for highly efficient thermoregulation and personal thermal management.

ABOUT THE LEAD INVENTOR

Dr. Trisha Andrew is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry at University of Massachusetts Amherst. Her research team builds textile electronics using a vapor deposition process, which allows for monolithic integration of electronic circuits onto flexible textile substrates.
