Laser Assisted Nano Engineering group (LANE) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln was established in fall of 2002 by professor Yongfeng Lu. LANE group carries out state of art research in the field of nanotechnology using lasers. We aim to develop novel techniques using lasers for various applications including surface cleaning, building photonic devices, nanoimprinting, nano-manufacturing, nano-Raman and Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) microscopy.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory is home to the Department of Energy’s (DOE) new Carbon Fiber Technology Facility (CFTF)—a 42,000 sq. ft. innovative technology facility. The CFTF offers a highly flexible, highly instrumented carbon fiber line for demonstrating advanced technology scalability and producing market-development volumes of prototypical carbon fibers, and serves as the last step before commercial production scale.
The main focus of the Hinestroza Research Group is to explore the interface between the technologically established and mature field of textile science and the emerging and revolutionary field of nanoscale science. The textile industry was the first beneficiary of the scientific developments from the 18th century's industrial revolution while nanoscale science and nanotechnology emerged at the end of the 21st century.
