Abstract

Nowadays nanofibers become an integral part of any field of science. One of the most popular methods for producing nanofibers is electrospinning. In our research work, we also used this method. Traditional static collector was replaced with rotating consisting of several metal bars which have been placed in a circle [3]. In these way metallic elements catches nanofibers like tradition collector and wounds it. In the end we eventually obtained layer consisting of parallel directed nanofibers. Further the material is collected and sent to the post-processing. It is planned to be used in medicine, in particular for producing implants for treating glaucoma disease. Experimentally it was revealed that the shape, size, material of which the rods of the collecting head play an important role on the fiber collection efficiency. This article describes an experiment in which several different types of collecting heads were used. The experiment was conducted at the same temperature and humidity. Polyvinyl alcohol was used as the polymer solution.
