Silkworm-inspired nanofiber production

March 1st, 2023

Inspired by the silkworm, scientists at China’s Sichuan University have developed a faster and simpler method of producing nanofibers. According to the researchers, existing nanofiber production methods are either complicated, slow or produce substandard fibers. But the silkworm produces a high-quality, ultra-thin silk fiber quickly by secreting its sticky saliva onto a surface and then […]
