Nanofluidics & Microfluidics

Fluidic phenomena at nanometer-to-micrometer length scales constitute a vibrant area of research in the department.  Fundamental studies address the unique properties of fluid flow in nanometer-scale vessels, alterations to molecular reactivity resulting from crowding and confinement, the special nature of the micro-nano interface, and the use of external fields to drive transport and reactivity.  Applications of fluidics range from lab-on-a-chip (micro total analysis) systems for chemical and biochemical analysis to ultra-efficient reactive processing and catalysis.
