Temperature responsive smart textile 

Rock et al of  MMI-IPCO, LLC and Mide Technology Corporation, Massachusetts,  developed a smart textile fabric with a raised surface containing multicomponent fibers. The two different components have differential thermal elongations, which causes the multicomponent fibers to bend or curl and reversibly recover in response to changes in temperature, thereby adjusting insulation performance of the textile fabric in response to ambient conditions.  (RDC 3/19/2013)
