Title: ELECTROSPINNING NOZZLE
Abstract:
Apparatus and methods for electrospinning, electrojetting and/or electrospraying are disclosed. The apparatus includes a nozzle for the formation of a fluid jet from a fluid cone, the nozzle having a plurality of ducts arranged for supplying a plurality of fluids for use in the formation of the fluid jet. The ducts may issue onto one or more openings, for example, concentric openings for the production of core-shell nanofibres and particles, or core- multishell nanofibres and particles. The apparatus may also include a manifold for supplying the fluids to the nozzle from one or more fluid reservoirs.
