Tubes by fibre templates with two nanofabrication processes electrospinning and atomic layer deposition

    Abstract

    Electrospinning is a fibre formation method capable for producing sub-micron and nanosized fibres. Electrostatic field is uti-lized for drawing of fibres from polymeric solutions, and nonwoven structures can be obtained. Atomic layer deposition (ALD) is method used for preparing coatings on atomistic level. This method is a surface controlled layer-by-layer process based on self-terminating gas-solid reactions. We have now combined these two processes and removal of template fibre for producing tubes. The aim of this presentation is to give an introduction to Tubes by Fibre Templates process (TUFT) combining electrospinning and ALD processes and discuss application possibilities of such tube materials. Some results of preliminary trials are also given.
