Modeling Light Reflection from Polyacrylonitrile Nanofiber
Abstract:One of the most important techniques to spinning polymer fibers with diameter in nanometer scale is electrospining process. Nanofibers with various range of diameter from few tens nanometers to micrometers, can have large specific areas, are produced under a high electric field by this technique. The nanofiber diameter depends on many parameters such as applied electric field, the polymer concentrations, the rate of injection and nozzle-collector distance. Current work presents a geometric model able to predict the optical properties of polyacrylonitrile nanofibers. Predicted model indicate that the reflectance and lightness increased by decreasing the nanofiber diameter. In addition, the colorfulness of nanofiber decreased with decreasing diameter.
