Characterization of electrospinning jet using interference color technique
A comprehensive model combining electromagnetic theory of light and quantitative science of color perception was developed and experimentally validated to characterize the diameter of a fluid electrospinning jet from the interference colors shown on the jet. One light source and one camera provide real-time micron scale information about the jet diameter. The jet segments may be moving during the measurements. This method provides continuous measurements of jets with diameters from 15 to 0.5 microns. Observation of color patterns also provides information about the taper of the jet.
