Invisible face mask developed by FLOW researcher and collaborators

Published Apr 11, 2024

Our colleague Ricardo Vinuesa and collaborators have developed an invisible face mask reduces the risk of airborne virus transmission. The concept is based on steering the airflow away from the user, resulting in a solution that outperforms physical face masks.

The innovation is the result of extensive, international collaboration. "The idea was born in dialogue with my engineering colleague Ramon Navarro, and further developed with experts in fluid mechanics and numerical simulations, leading to an improved design", says Vinuesa.
