ElectroSpin 2010 in Melbourne
CSIRO are hosting ElectroSpin 2010 in Melbourne this week. I only noticed this because it was taking place in the hotel I was staying in. Electrospinning can be used to make nano fibres using an electrical charge. The fibres can't be produced in large quantities at present and so a re limed to apllications not needing much, such as ultra-fine filters and medicine, rather than bullet proof vests.
