Metal Nanofibers with Highly Tunable Electrical and Magnetic Properties via Highly Loaded Water-Based Electrospinning



original image

Nanofibers are synthesized by electrospinning highly loaded water-based precursor–polymer hybrid solutions followed by thermal treatment to control crystal structure. Electrical conductivity and magnetic coercivity, as shown, are tested displaying independent magnetic and electrical property control from coercive to superparamagnetic and resistive to near-bulk conductivity at room temperature.
