Electrospun fibres. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a bundle of fibres produced using electrospinning. Electrospinning is a fibre production method that uses electrostatic forces to draw charged threads of polymer solutions (or polymer melts) up to nano-fibre diameters. The process is particularly suited to the production of fibres using large and complex molecules. Magnification: x107,000 at 10 centimetres wide.
