Abstract

A simple and novel method to produce silica nanochannels is introduced in this paper. With scanned coaxial electrospinning, aligned hollow nanofibers with diameter of sub 100nm can be fabricated. The resultant nanochannels were examined by scanning electron microscope (SEM). The results show that by adjusting the processing parameters, the inner diameter as well as outer diameter of the nanochannel can be tailed in a controlled fashion. The performance of this nanochannel was also investigated by the transportation of fluorescence molecules.
