The benefits of wearing face masks to help slow the spread of COVID-19 are now well understood, but scientists are still searching for better materials to use and a filter ‘paper’ made up of titanium oxide nanowires is showing a lot of promise.
The new material is so good at trapping pathogens, and destroying them when ultraviolet light is applied, it could also be used in air conditioning units and ventilation systems, according to the developers.
While the nanowire-based mask looks as though…
