A matter of orientation: The nanofibers in cables that consist of assemblies of these nanofibers can be oriented parallel or perpendicular to the longitudinal axis by regulating the fluidic velocities of the core and sheath flows in coaxial microfluidic devices (see picture). Control of the internal morphology enables fabrication of cables with improved electrical conductivity and mechanical properties.
