Electrospinning technique lets nanofibers realize their potential

Abstract:
Nano-scale polymer fibers—the thinner, the better—can potentially enable the manufacture of more effective chemical sensors, biochips, protective clothing and other innovations. But the standard technique for producing these fibers, electrospinning, produces a chaotic tangle rather than controllable patterns. A variant of the technique, near-field electrospinning, offers full control over the path of deposited nanofibers, allowing them to realize their engineering potential. "It could open up the field, taking it in completely different directions," says the technique's pioneer, Berkeley mechanical engineering professor Liwei Lin.
