Abstract
There is no capability to rapidly assess the electrical properties of nanofiber films during manufacturing and prepregging process. Continuous monitoring of these films will guide the U.S. nanofiber manufacturing industry in optimizing and increasing the yield rate with proper process optimization and avoid any inconsistency in the process and the cost with associated waste material. To address this technology gap in the U.S. manufacturing industry, PaneraTech, under the NIST SBIR Phase I program, demonstrated feasibility of an Inline Material Electrical Characterization Sensor (IMECS) for non-contact evaluation of nanofiber films during the manufacturing. Under this Phase II program, we will build a fully functional prototype, which will be ready for transitioning to the market.
