- This study presents a novel droplet-jet mode of near-field electrospinning which allows microscale control of helix patterns using nanofiber. While the cone-jet mode has been used to generate a printable nanofiber to date, the cone-jet mode requires a high applied voltage with a long jet travel distance to obtain the nanofiber, resulting in a large coiling diameter. In order to integrate the near-field electrospinning into microscale devices, it is important to achieve a comparable nanofiber pattern resolution. Herein, we have demonstrated printing of nanofibers with a coiling diameter of sub-10 µ m, which is produced by the droplet-jet mode of near-field electrospinning. Also, it is found that the coiling diameter, wavelength, and frequency can be controlled by the droplet size as one of the process parameters in the droplet-jet mode. The droplet-jet mode will be a promising near-field electrospinning technique to apply direct-written nanofibers to various micro-scale applications.
