FIGURE 7.3

SEM images of electrospun filaments of protein polymers with tailored morphologies. The diameters of the filaments created by electrospinning can be controlled by changing the solution concentration, electric field, and distance from the substrate. The filaments deposited from closer to the probe are flatter and form a dense mat (a), while the filaments deposited from farther away are rounded and open (b) [43]. (Used with permission.)
