Novel luminescent electrospun polymer nanofibers are successfully prepared via a two-fluid spinneret for thermo-tunable colorimetric sensor applications. PF-b-PNIPAAm/PMMA electrospun fibers exhibit both reversible temperature-responsive wettability and PF aggregate size changes as the temperature is cycled between 20 and 40 °C.
