Carbon nanofibers (CNFs) are the most basic structure of one-dimensional nanometer-scale sp2 carbon. The CNF's structure provides fast current transfer and a large surface area and it is widely used as an energy storage material and as a sensor electrode material. Electrospinning is a well-known technology that enables the production of a large number of uniform nanofibers and it is the easiest way to mass-produce CNFs of a specific diameter. In this review article, we introduce an

This paper also discusses research on the applications of CNFs with various structures that have recently been developed for sensor electrode materials and energy storage materials.
