Keywords:electrospinning? tissue engineering? filtration?

In the past years, electrospinning has become a method of choice for producing ultra-thin high-strength fibers due to its versatility, ease of use, ability to align structures and control fiber sizes. This process is also highly suitable for dispersing different constituent materials into fiber structures. Hence, electrospinning has found increasing importance in the field of fabricating advanced nanomaterials for various applications, such as tissue engineering, filtration, nanofiber composites, etc. In many of these applications, it is extremely important to understand the mechanical properties of the fibers; for example, cell proliferation and growth get affected significantly by the elastic modulus of the constituents in a tissue scaffold.
