Abstract

See full text

A process is disclosed for making ultra fine fibers comprising forming a continuous cladding about a plurality of coated metallic wires. The cladding is drawn for reducing the outer diameter and for diffusion bonding the coating within the cladding. A plurality of the drawn claddings are assembled and a second cladding is formed the remainders. The second cladding is drawn for further reducing the outer diameter. The sacrificial coating and the claddings are removed to obtain a plurality of ultra fine fibers. In some embodiments, the ultra fine fibers are converted through a doping process.
