New Microshaping Concepts for Ceramic/Polymer Nanocomposite and Nanoceramic Fibers
Abstract:New, general, and versatile concepts for the fabrication of continuous ceramic and ceramic/polymer nanocomposite fibers have been developed. These enable the fabrication of new ceramic and highly loaded nanocomposite fibers with controlled compositions and microstructures. Continuous fibers with dimensions of 15–500 m have been demonstrated using several spinning approaches.
