AbstractConductive micro and nanofibers have been produced by melt-spinning and electrospinning. Melt-spinning uses mechanical forces to stretch fibers while electrospinning allows the production of fibers using the force of an electric field to stretch them. Alternatively, textile multifilament fibers were coated with intrinsically conducting polymers (ICPs). The fibers were characterized by electron microscopy (SEM, TEM) as well as 4-point probe conductivity measurements.
