This paper presents an efficient fabrication process of highly aligned P(VDF-TrFE) nanofibers based on conventional far-field electrospinning (CFES) technique. By attaching a comb-shape electrode onto a fast rotating drum, the process combines the advantages of plane electrode and rotating-drum-collecting methods, which leads to the orientation of the deposited nanofibers and enhances it. Additionally, the high rotating speed also contributes to the fast and continuous deposition of the… CONTINUE READING
