This research aims to synthesize and characterize the PbTiO3 nanofibres by electrospinning technique. PbTiO3 nanofibre was fabricated onto Al-substrate by home-made electrospinning setup. The spinning or running time was set to 20 min. After spinning, subsequent annealing in oxygen and atmospheric ambient was performed at 600°C for 1 h and followed to form the PbTiO3 nanofibres. Surface morphology and fibres quality of PbTiO3 nanofibres were examined by Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM). From FESEM image, the fibre diameter was measured to be (150-180 nm) with different collector distances. The experimental data resulted from this research showed that the home-made device compiled and growth chemistry was technically simple and easily adaptable.
