Meta-Cooling Textile

Principal Investigator(s): 

Abstract: 

This project is a joint effort led by Dr. YuHuang Wang with co-PI Dr. Min Ouyang (Physics), Dr. Bao Yang (Mechanical Engineering), and Dr. Liangbing Hu (Materials Science and Engineering), and an industrial partner. The goal is to develop a thermally-responsive fabric that extends body’s thermoregulation ability to maintain comfort in hotter or cooler office settings. The added regulation capacity will expand the range of temperature set points, thereby saving energy for buildings.
