Hi there,

Can anyone please explain the meaning of the word "mat" in the following scientific text?

"The synthesis method is described elsewhere [43]. Briefly, the nanoshells are prepared by magnetron sputtering deposition on top of the mat of polymer fibers, which act as a template that shapes the morphology of the palladium being deposited while providing support to the metallic scaffold that is created. "
