A novel micro- and nanoweaving method based on the electroactuation properties of microfibers is developed. Poly(vinyl alcohol) microfibers are bent using electrical stimuli, with high electrosensitivity. The generated actuation force guide the fiber (monofilament) up or down by more than 5 mm, to provide a shedding motion for weaving ultrathin, uniform micro- or nanofabrics.
