Meshes of electrospun ES polycaprolactone PCL and polyethylene terephthalate nanofiber meshes were structured by ablation of linear grooves with a scanned femtosecond laser. Focus spot size, pulse energy, and scanning speed were varied to determine their affects on groove size and the characteristics of the electrospun fiber at the edges of these grooves. The femtosecond laser was seen to be an effective means for flexibly structuring the surface of ES PCL scaffolds. Femtosecond ablation… CONTINUE READING
