Electrospinning is a process in which an electrified liquid jet is ejected by the interaction between the surface tension and the exerted electric force on the droplet surface. It is important to understand the effects of an electric field on the path of the ejected jet from the droplet to the opposite electrode in the electrospinning process. The effects of electric fields on the formation of nano-webs are presented in this paper. As the design of the electrodes varies, the ejected jets were deposit on the screen, exhibiting different or chareateristics. The design of the electric field is a significant parameter in the attempt to control nano-web formation.
