Magnetospinning is a new method for spinning of continuous micro-and nanofibers using a permanent revolving magnet. The method utilizes magnetic forces and the hydrodynamic features of stretched threads to produce highly loaded, fine magnetic nanofibers. The magnetospinning process is independent of the solution dielectric properties and requires no high voltages, in contrast to the more-traditional electrospinning technique.
