Electrospinning has become a popular technique investigated for tissue engineering applications. Electrospinning is unique because it is capable of producing small fibers (diameters ranging from several nanometers to several microns) in a nonwoven mat, which is similar to the architecture of the extracellular matrix (ECM) within tissues [1]. The microenvironment of the cells should be analogous to that of native tissue so that cellular growth and function are improved.
