Graphene textile clothing will cool the body during the heat

Researchers have developed a smart textile prototype with an integrated graphene layer that helps lower body temperature in hot climates.

The human body constantly emits energy in the form of infrared waves, which are delayed by any clothing. Although this helps to keep warm in cold weather, but during the heat only worsens the situation. It is possible to achieve free heat removal from the body using textiles that are transparent to infrared radiation.

A team from the University of Manchester used graphene to create clothing. Scientists integrated several layers of two-dimensional material into the fabric, and then using electricity, they adjusted the ability of textiles to release energy. They then attached a square insert of adapted material to the polo to assess its ability to control thermal radiation. Depending on the setting, the graphene layer could freely transmit or completely retain the outgoing heat.

According to the researchers, this technology can also be used to create interactive infrared displays and hidden communication devices on textiles.

In the near future, smart textiles are beginning to be used in various fields, including computer technology. The Google research group has developed a new technology for managing various devices and gadgets using a lace of electronic textiles.
