Title (EN) CIGARETTE FILTER INCORPORATING NANOFIBERS
(FR) FILTRE DE CIGARETTES CONTENANT DES NANOFIBRES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A cigarette (11) is equipped with a filter (15) incorporating nanofibers (17). The nanofibers can be used either alone or in conjunction with other filtering media such as larger fibers (41), paper (43), activated charcoal, etc. With a nanofiber filter, the filter need not be as dense as the molecules of the smoke become attracted to the nanofiber due to quantum mechanics instead of being sieved out. The efficacy of the filter is better than filters with larger diameter fibers.
(FR)L'invention porte sur une cigarette (1) pourvue d'un filtre (15) contenant des nanofibres (17). Ces nanofibres peuvent être utilisées seules ou en combinaison avec d'autres supports de filtrage telles les fibres plus grandes (41), du papier (43), du charbon de bois activé, etc. Grâce à un filtre de nanofibres, le filtre ne doit pas nécessairement être aussi dense puisque les molécules de la fumée sont attirées par les nanofibres en raison de la mécanique quantique au lieu d'être tamisées. L'efficacité du filtre est meilleure que celle des filtres présentant des fibres à plus grand diamètre.
