Figure 1

SEM image of (a) as-spun nanofibers of BFO/Nylon6 prior to calcination. The image indicates the formation of continuous cylindrical nanofibers. (b) BFO nanofibers after calcination at 600°C. The integrity of the nanofibers is intact after the elimination of Nylon6; the inset shows FE-SEM image of the BFO nanofibers after calcination at 600°C with the scale bar indicating 100 nm. BFO nanofibers contain BFO crystallite with the mean size of 29 nm.
