electrospinning

Definitions

from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition.

  • noun A process in which ultrathin, multifilament fibers with diameters in the nanometer range are created by spinning and manipulating streams of electrically charged polymers in a strong magnetic or electric field, used to make specialized fabrics, such as those in space suits.

Examples

  • They built a mesh through a process called electrospinning, which uses electrical charges to draw biodegradable polymers out of a needle and into a fine stream, producing interwoven fibers ranging from 1/20th to 1/1000th the width of a hair, Smith explained.
