Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We report an approach for the hierarchical assembly of nanofibers into crossbar nanostructures. The polymer nanofibers are created through electrospinning process with diameters ranging in 10-80 nm and lengths of up to centimeters. By controlling the electrostatic field and the polymer rheology of the nanofibers, they can be assembled into parallel periodic arrays.
