Nanofibers created in orderly fashion

Abstract:
... researchers at University of California, Berkeley, have found a way to use the electric-field process to make nanofibers in a direct, continuous and controllable manner. The new technique, known as near-field electrospinning, offers the possibility of producing out of nanofibers new, specialized materials with organized patterns that can be used for such applications as wound dressings, filtrations and bio-scaffolds.

"Conventional electrospinning is a random, chaotic process," Liwei Lin said. "Our breakthrough is that we are now able to control fairly precisely the location and deposition of the nanofibers."
