EFFECT OF FLOW RATE ON DIAMETER OF ELECTROSPUN NANOPOROUS FIBERS

ABSTRACT
The effect of flow rate on the diameter of the charged jet in the electrospinning process is studied theoretically. The obtained theoretical results offer in-depth physical understanding and mechanism of nanoporous fibers. It also reveals that the morphology and diameter of nanoporous microspheres can be controlled by the flow rate.
