In this study, PEO nanofibers with novel architectures were developed via newly designed distance positioning apparatus in order to feed polymer solution in a different way. The surface morphology and alignment of nanofibers were observed using a scanning electron microscope (SEM). SEM micrographs revealed that different morphologies could be obtained by changing feeding position. For the first time in the nanofibers literature; nanofibers were simultaneously collected on three different positions (collector plate, X-axis, and Y-axis) and surface morphology of these nanofibers was found to be different which is promising in terms of their potential regarding utilization of same nanofibrous mat for functional applications.
