MIT News (October 2017): 3-D-printed device builds better nanofibers – Printed nozzle system could make uniform, versatile fibers at much lower cost.
Meshes made from fibers with nanometer-scale diameters have a wide range of potential applications, including tissue engineering, water filtration, solar cells, and even body armor. But their commercialization has been hampered by inefficient manufacturing techniques. In the latest issue of the journal Nanotechnology, MIT researchers describe a new device for producing nanofiber meshes, which matches…
