Title: Spinning Oriented Nanofibers that are Below 50 Nanometers
Source: Nonwovens Cooperative Research Center at NC State
Amount: $150,000
Period: 1/1/13-12/31/15

The project aims at fundamental study and modification of solution blowing process recently introduced by Yarin’s group as a means for the rapid formation of polymer nanofibers from polymer solutions.In the present project, the aim is to produce the nanofibers in the range 20-50 nm on demand. This will be achieved by supersonic blowing based on the de Laval (converging-diverging) nozzles
