Electrospinning is based on the principle of using an electrical charge to create tiny fibres from a polymer solutions.
Our laboratory scale to pilot scale electrospinning facilities translate a concept to a functional material for prototypes and devices.
Ground-breaking nanofibre technology is being used to create next-generation protective suits. CSIRO and DST are developing a fabric incorporating a synthetic electrospun nanofibre layer that keeps out fine toxic particles.
DMTC Project Leader Yen Bach Truong has been recognised for her outstanding research efforts with a CSIRO Julius Career Award. Julius Career Awards are designed to enhance the careers of exceptional early to mid-career scientists, and reinforce the culture of scientific excellence in CSIRO.
