Electrospinning provides a viable method to produce both single fibers and mats of nonwoven fibers. For a nonwoven mat, fusing of the fibers at intersections produces an integrated structure. The ability to spin fibrous mats of nanofibers with and without fusing between the fibers is demonstrated using poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) fibers. The fusing was controlled by adjusting the amount of water vapor in the surrounding environment.
