NanoTV video


This video was made for non-specialist audiences to illustrate how nanotechnology can aid in the development of a useful, environmentally-friendly coating technology. It illustrates the general problem of biofouling for ship hulls, how a novel amphiphilic coating technology developed in the project works, in simple terms, and aspects of the testing of coatings.
