This novel synthetic fibre reflects near-infrared (NIR) and visible light from the sun and allows the human body to release far-infrared (FIR), achieving outstanding cooling effects under solar radiation. Inspired by Salty Ice Plant, a natural plant which holds salt crystals on the surface of leaves and stems and reflects sunlight to cool itself, we use bicomponent melt spinning to deposit nano-sized ceramic crystals inside synthetic fibres. Textiles made from these fibres reflect sunlight whil...
