Abstract
This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop a low cost manufacturing process for a carbon nanotube based (CNT) dry adhesive that emulates the mechanical properties of gecko feet and that can be scaled up to a large scale. The superior performance of CNT dry adhesives will significantly change the horizon of the adhesives industry, heavily impact many industrial and consumer production processes and create a broad array of products.
