- Nanofiber spinning methods and how they are reconfigured for multiple fiber morphologies and fibrous architectures
- Strategies for monitoring and improving nanofiber quality
- Nanofibers from polymers, carbon, metals, ceramics
Fundamentals of Electrospinning & Electrospun Nanofibers reviews and analyzes the methods whereby nanofibers are spun, collected and fabricated into various fibrous structures. The text explains the workings, quantitative specifications and set-up of virtually all formation technologies, including solvent and solvent-free, as well as needle and needleless spinning methods for nanofibers made from polymers, carbon and other materials. Practical information is provided for understanding and designing devices to fabricate nanofibers with many different shapes and internal structures. Special attention is given to strategies for overcoming defects in nanofibers and controlling their overall quality.
From the Foreword by Liming Dai
“This book will be useful both to students…and those researchers who actively work in materials science and engineering, nanotechnology, fibers and textiles…I am confident it will be a valuable resource to promote the development of various electrospun nanofibers and yarns for practical applications.”
