A highly sensitive exhaled-breath sensor, using tin dioxide (SnO2) fibers assembled from thin, wrinkled SnO2 nanotubes can be developed. These metal-oxide nanofiber-based chemiresistive gas sensors allow for portable real-time breath tests that could be available on smart phones or tablets in the near future. They sensors allow for diagnosing serious diseases such as diabetes or lung cancer quickly and effectively by simply breathing into a small nanofiber breathing sensor, mounted on a phone…

Evaluating the cytotoxicity of tin dioxide nanofibers

To gain additional insight about the mechanism of cytotoxicity of SnDNFs, genes with links to inflammation and apoptosis were evaluated and found to be over-expressed in treated cells.



Electrospinning of nanomaterials and applications in electronic components and devices.

The thin, porous structure of Electrospun nanofibers provides for the high strain and fast response required for improved actuator performance, and the current review examines recent advances in the application of electrospinning in fabricating electronic components and devices.

A novel highly porous structure, which is a three-dimensional interconnected fibrous network with a fiber diameter ranging from 50 to 500 nm, has been created from biodegradable aliphatic polyesters in this work to mimic natural extracellular matrix architecture.

Drawing a single nanofibre over hundreds of microns

We demonstrate that the limits of drawing of fibre can be pushed down to nanometre dimensions. By a process similar to dry-spinning, nanofibres can be drawn with ultimate dimensions comparable with

Transient and steady shapes of droplets attached to a surface in a strong electric field

The shape evolution of small droplets attached to a conducting surface and subjected to relatively strong electric fields is studied both experimentally and numerically. The problem is motivated by
