Submission + - Nano-Material Paves Way for Self-Washing Windows (inhabitat.com)

MikeChino writes: While working on a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, researchers at Tel Aviv University recently discovered a new nano-material that repels dust and water. It's created by placing peptides (short polymers) in a vacuum under high pressure, which creates "forests" of self-assembling nanotubes. Because the nanotubes are resistant to water and heat, researchers figure that the nano-material would be an ideal coating for windows and solar panels, essentially creating products that clean themselves. Once commercialized, the material could be applied as a sheer coating, creating self-washing windows and solar panels.
