Fabrication of Nanofibers via Crater-Like Electrospinning
Nanofibers, with its excellent performance, have played a significant role in the fields of filtration materials, medical materials, biomaterials, etc. In this work, a novel electrospinning technique, carter-like electrospinning, was presented and used to produce nanofibers. Multiple jets, which have the potential to increase the yield of nanofibers, were found in our experiments. The geometric properties, such as fiber diameter, diameter distribution, and surface morphology of the produced Nanofibers via this process, were characterized using a field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM). The results showed that the diameters of nanofibers ranged from several nanometers to one micron, and the nanofibers had average diameter of 84-550nm.
