The effect of CO2 laser irradiation on surface and dyeing properties of wool for textile design (2014)
Conference Proceeding
Morgan, L., Tyrer, J., & Kane, F. (2014). The effect of CO2 laser irradiation on surface and dyeing properties of wool for textile design. https://doi.org/10.2351/1.5063061

The consumption of water and energy used in current dyeing and finishing processes in the textile industry pose significant environmental concern. By offering alternative solutions to traditional textile wet processing through laser technology, there...

Sustainable urban drainage: Retrofitting for improved flood mitigation in city centres (2014)
Report
Lamond, J., Wilkinson, S., Rose, C., & Proverbs, D. (2014). Sustainable urban drainage: Retrofitting for improved flood mitigation in city centres

AIM The aim of this research was to examine the potential for mitigation of predominantly pluvial flooding in CBDs through retrofitting of such systems. The research used two case study areas to explore the challenges and opportunities for retrofit...

Laser Enhanced Dyeing of Wool for Textile Design (2014)
Presentation / Conference
Morgan, L., Tyrer, J., Kane, F., & Shen, J. (2014, November). Laser Enhanced Dyeing of Wool for Textile Design. Paper presented at Transitions: Re-thinking Textiles and Surfaces, University Of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, U.K

A laser assisted dyeing technique for wool based textiles, allowing surface pattering of the textile substrate, is presented in this paper. Laser technology can offer digital design capabilities combined with the ability for bespoke or short run prod... Read More about Laser Enhanced Dyeing of Wool for Textile Design.
