Abstract:
Aligned PVDF nanofibers with a mean diameter of 94 nm and a high content of β-phase were
successfully prepared by a modified electrospinning technique. The morphology and diameter of nanofibers
were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and the crystalline structure of nanofibers was analysed
with XRD. The aligned nanofibers have more β-phase and desired piezoelectric properties.
