 Industry Updates

  • In January 2019, researchers at the McMaster University developed a special smart coating that can absorb specifically ‘targeted’ substances. The coating contains very thin layers of FDA-approved lubricant and some specific biomolecules which bind to target species. The smart coating can potentially find the application on medical implants where it can reduce the risk of clot formation and infection.
  • January 2019- researchers at Penn State have developed an advanced antireflectionsmart coating that is not only capable of improving existing coatings but can also make transparent plastics virtually invisible.
