[en] Poly(ε-caprolactone)(PCL forms a part of the aliphatic polyesters; the biodegradable and biocompatible character of these polymers makes them outstanding candidates for short-to medium-term biomedical applications, especially in the form of nanometric fibers,as their assembly mimics the extracellular matrix structure. However, a prerequisite to their application as nanofibrous biomaterial scaffolds is the investigation of their mechanical strength. In the present study, PCL fibers produced by electrospinning were individually tested using an AFM-based nano-scale three-point bending technique.
