Abstract

Electrospinning is the most widely used nanometer-sized polymer fiber production technique. The properties of the deposited fiber mats are strongly dependent on the ability to control the fiber extrusion and its deposition location. In this work we demonstrate the ability to steer the charged fiber by external Coulomb forces generated by a set of auxiliary electrodes. A mathematical model describing the fiber trajectory was used to estimate the unknown material properties of the fiber by matching the experimental and simulation results.
