Abstract

The electrical, structural, and chemical properties of twisted yarns of metal-oxide nanofibers, fabricated using a modified electrospinning technique, are investigated in this report. In particular, synthesized zinc oxide and nickel oxide yarns having diameters in the range of 4-40 mu m and lengths up to 10 cm were characterized, whose constituent nanofibers had average diameters of 60-100 nm. These yarns have one macroscopic dimension for handling while retaining some of the properties of nanofibers. (C) 2008 American Institute of Physics.
