The preparation of Janus fibers using a new side-by-side electrospinning process is reported. By manipulating the angle between the two ports of the spinneret emitting the working fluids, Janus nanofibers with tunable structures in terms of width, interfacial area and also volume of each side can be easily fabricated.
