Polymer nanofibers are attractive in many engineering and medical applications because of its distinctive mechanical, chemical, and electrical properties typically evident in nanomaterials. Some applications are liquid & particle filters, composites, surgical masks, sensors. We propose a fibre fabrication method that can produce continuous polymer nanofibres with submicron cross-section. This technique can spin fibres from precursor rheologies that would be considered “unspinnable” by any other current method. As such, this technique may allow the fabrication of novel fibre structures, assist in the fabrication of nanofibers from new materials, and allow the use of novel chemical routes in fibre spinning.
