New hybrid quantum dot (QD)/nanofibers have potential applications in a variety of fields. A novel fluorescent nanocomposite nanofiber material, consisting of CdS and zein has been fabricated through the electrospinning process. A detailed optimization was carried out to fabricate continuous and uniform nanofibers without beads or droplets. The synthesized hybrid nanofibers were characterized by various state-of-the-art techniques such as scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron… Expand
