Professor Ayman Abouraddy's discovery featured in Nature

Fragmented Fibers
These micrographs show the fibers embedded in polymer and demonstrate how the fibers break apart into segments when they are stretched out in the cold-drawing process.

Professor Ayman Abouraddy's discovery, where complex fibers are stretched to produce nanoscale rods or strips, will be featured in an upcoming Nature paper. Press releases about this discovery were made by both UCF and MIT:
