Summary In this paper, a new image analysis basedmethod for electrospun nanofiber diameter measurementhas been presented. The method was tested by a simulatedimage with known characteristics and a real web. Mean(M) and standard deviation (STD) of fiber diameterobtained using this method for the simulated image were15.02 and 4.80 pixels respectively, compared to the truevalues of 15.35 and 4.47 pixels. For the real web, applyingthe method resulted in M and STD of 324 and 50.4 nmwhich are extremely close to the values of 319 and 42 nmobtained using manual method. The results show that thisapproach is successful in making fast, accurate automatedmeasurements of electrospun fiber diameters.
