Highly oriented zinc oxide nanofibers with a length of several centimeters are fabricated using a newly modified electrospinning method. Very different from the conventional electrospinning process, the fibers are collected between the electrodes. The key to success is the reduction of interelectrode distance and the use of an ultra strong electric field, which is about six times higher than conventional conditions.
