The side effects or toxicity of cyanoacrylate used in vivo have been argued since its first application in wound closure. We propose an airflow-assisted in situ precision electrospinning apparatus as an applicator and make a detailed comparison with traditional spraying via in vitro and in vivo experiments. This novel method can not only improve operational(More)
A conventional melt electrospinning setup usually needs a large, heavy high-voltage power supply and cannot work without a plug (electricity supply). In this article, we report a new melt electrospinning setup based on a small hand-operated Wimshurst generator, which can avoid electrical interference between the high-voltage spinning system and the heating(More)
Electrospinning (e-spinning) still has certain limitations in flexible practicability because its conventional setup is usually quite bulky and excessively dependent on a plug (electric supply). In this article, we report on a battery-operated e-spinning apparatus (BOEA) based on miniaturization and integration. The new device gets liberated from the(More)
PURPOSE In this work, we propose an in situ precise electrospinning of medical glue fibers onto dural wound for improving sealing capability, avoiding tissue adhesion, and saving time in dural repair. METHODS N-octyl-2-cyanoacrylate, a commercial tissue adhesive (medical glue), can be electrospun into ultrathin fibrous film with precise and homogeneous(More)
Current strategies for wound care provide limited relief to millions of patients who suffer from burns, chronic skin ulcers or surgical-related wounds. The goal of this work is to develop an in situ deposition of a personalized nanofibrous dressing via a handy electrospinning (e-spinning) device and evaluate its properties related to skin wound care.

Electrospinning (e-spinning) devices and electrospun (e-spun) ultrathin fibers have shown promising applications in various fields. However, the poor portability of conventional e-spinning devices limits some potential applications especially in the case without a plug (electricity supply). Consequently, great efforts have been made to modify e-spinning(More)
We theoretically study ballistic transport of Dirac fermions in MoS2 junction through arrays of barriers, of width [Formula: see text], in the presence of a tunable potential of height [Formula: see text] and an exchange field [Formula: see text]. The charge conductance as functions of [Formula: see text] and [Formula: see text], exhibits more conspicuous(More)
