Iranian scientists optimize Nanofiber machines
Researchers from Amirkabir University of Technology and the Polytechnic University of Milan have designed an optimized Nanofiber production machine that can produce enhanced Nanofiber.
An Amirkabir University researcher Fatemeh Hejazi discussed the advantages of electrospinning and added “electrospinning has higher control over the shape of the fiber and greater variety. The nanofiber produced through electrospinning has enhanced mechanical, thermal and electronic characteristics with lower costs compared to normal nanofibers.”
“One of the disadvantages of the nanofiber produced through electrospinning is the jumbled pattern of nanofibers on one another which can cause problems on the way of using the nanofiber. One of the pieces of the electrospinning machine has been optimized which has considerably enhanced the characteristics of the produced nanofiber,” she asserted.
Fatemeh Hejazi said that inserting the said piece in electrospinning machines results in greater control over the morphology and microstructure of the resulting nanofiber which enables us to produce the three dimensional structures of nanofibers cheaply. “This design can contribute greatly to improving the capabilities of nanofiber structures produced through electrospinning in industries.”
Nanofiber can be used for insulation and creating durability and is utilized for electronic, medical and filtering purposes. Electrospinning is an industrialized method for producing Nanofibers.
The said research has been carried out by Fatemeh Hejazi from Amirkabir University of Technology and Hamid Mirzadeh the Polytechnic University of Milan.
