Nanofiber

 

Nanoparticle with two dimensions at the nanoscale and an aspect ratio of greater than 3:1

Source

A polymer membrane formed by electrospinning, with filament diameters of 150-200 nanometers. Also called nanomesh, it is used in air and liquid filtration applications.

Nanomesh and Nanofibres: This term covers CNT's (see above), and as described here, the other "nanoscale fibers" referred to as "polymeric" (made from polymers). Currently used in air and liquid filtration applications. Using a process called "electrospinning" - or e-spin - a polymer "mesh" is formed into a nanofiber membrane, hense "nanomesh", with 150 - 200 nm diameters. Some have been made since 1970, but were not called "nano" until recently. One potential use is "to prevent body tissues from sticking together as they heal. It also breaks down in the body over time like biodegradable sutures." , which makes it a surgical material for the 21st Century. Other uses include biomedical devices, filtration systems, and dust collecting systems.
