This paper reports the alignment of PAM micro/nanofibers using electrospinning techniques. Gaining alignment of micro/nanofibers is a critical step for their utilization in different applications. We report electrospinning approach with modified collector structure to get PAM fibers aligned. A collector with two conductive strips separated by small void channels on rotating disk has been used to create symmetrical distribution of electric field on both sides of the conductive strips which resulted in highly aligned fibers formation. We believe, this method provides a good control on the alignment of micro/nanofiber formation..
