Data on Nanofibers Reported by Researchers at Deakin University

April 29, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Investigators discuss new findings in Nanofibers. According to news reporting out of Geelong, Australia, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "This paper reports a fast, accurate, and non-destructive three-dimensional imaging approach based on using quantum dots and confocal laser scanning microscopy to get three-dimensional images of internal pore structure of the nanofibrous materials."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Deakin University, "A practical method of making the fiber fluorescent using quantum dots was applied before three-dimensional imaging by confocal laser scanning microscopy. Fibrous scaffolds with different porosity parameters produced by electrospinning and their three-dimensional pore structure was evaluated by this approach."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Furthermore, the introduced approach can be used to measure the pore interconnectivity of the scaffold."
