This picture shows a SEM micrograph of bulky fluffy PET nanofiber produced by CO2-laser supersonic drawing. The average fiber diameter of PET nanofiber obtained is 564 nm, and the SEM micrograph reveals that the nanofiber has a smooth surface that has not been roughened by laser ablation and is without droplets. Nanofiber 3D structures of various shapes can be prepared by using the metal molds that differ in shape because the nanofiber 3D structure can be prepared by compression molding after packing the fluffy nanofiber into the metal mold. Akihiro Suzuki and colleagues have proposed a CO2-laser supersonic drawing method as a novel technique for the production of nanofibers. This method can produce various nanofibers by only irradiating CO2-laser to fibers in the supersonic air jet. (DOI: 10.1002/app.45763)
