Event description

Description

Electrospinning is a technique that uses electrostatic forces to draw out nanometre-wide fibres which can then be transformed into versatile materials. Applications for these nanofibres include filtration, smart fabrics, and battery technology.

Electrospinning technique has experienced a rapid development in both scientific and technological aspects in the last two decades. The great research efforts contributed into this promising nanotechnology have not only extended the applications of electrospun nanofibrous materials, but also matured the fibre preparation process and electrospinning equipment.

In this presentation, some energy harvesting application work of electrospun nanofibres will be reviewed. We will also introduce the electrospinning machines available for use at ANFF. The ANFF equipment includes two electrospinning machines – a lab-scale batch production system and a nine-metre-long, industrial-scale system capable of continuously producing two-metre-wide sheets at a rate of approximately 2kg/hour.
