  • Thermally Drawn Polycaprolactone Fibres with Customised Cross Sections 

    Farajikhah, Syamak; Rukhlenko, Ivan; Stefani, Alessio; Large, Maryanne; Chrzanowskic, Wojciech; Fleming, Simon
    Published 2019
    There is growing demand for biodegradable polymer fibres in tissue engineering and nerve regeneration. We demonstrate a scalable and inexpensive fabrication technique to produce polycaproactone (PCL) fibres using fibredrawing ...

  • Deformable wire array: fiber drawn tunable metamaterials 

    Fleming, Simon; Stefani, Alessio; Tang, Xiaoli; Argyros, Alexander; Kemsley, Daniel; Cordi, James; Lwin, Richard
    Published 2017
    By fiber drawing we fabricate a wire array metamaterial, the structure of which can be actively modified. The plasma frequency can be tuned by 50% by compressing the metamaterial; recovers when released and the process can ...

  • Flexible optical fiber sensor based on polyurethane 

    Kaysir, Rejvi; Stefani, Alessio; Lwin, Richard; Fleming, Simon
    Published 2017
    Polyurethane (PU) based hollow core fibers are investigated as optical sensors. The flexibility of PU fibers makes it suitable for sensing mechanical perturbations. We fabricated a PU fiber using the fiber drawing method, ...
