Senator Rob Portman visits AAI lab

Senator Rob Portman visited AAI's lab at the Akron Accelerator this week.  Great to have access to such distinguished visitors.  Our engineer Ali Blandon and chemist Fei Wang taught him the principles of electrospinning and how AAI is using nanofibers to create high strength, damage-free, and repositionable dry adhesives.
