Fabrication of nanoscale glass fibers by electrospinning

Praeger, M., Saleh, E., Vaughan, A., Stewart, W.J. and Loh, W.H. (2012) Fabrication of nanoscale glass fibers by electrospinning Applied Physics Letters, 100, (6), p. 63114. (doi:10.1063/1.3684940).

Record type: Article


We report the experimental realization of glass nanofibers by electrospinning directly from a melt, demonstrating the viability of electrospinning fibers from non-polymer materials with high melting temperatures and higher surface tensions. The nanofiber material (B2O3) is molten on the tip of a gold wire, and voltage applied to the tip causes a jet to form, resulting in solid glass fibers with diameters of ~100 nm.
