Nanofluidics (340012)

Language

English


Short description

This course will give an introduction into nanofluidics (fundamental aspects, intrinsic length scales and geometry) and will discuss different selected topics in the field of nanofluidics, such as:

  • solid-liquid interfaces (interactions, adsorption/desorption)
  • hydrodynamics at small scales (laminar flow, slip versus no-slip, mixing)
  • 3-phase systems (capillary forces, wetting, superhydrophobicity)
  • electrokinetic effects (electroosmotic pumping, electroviscous effect)
  • electrophoresis and separation techniques
  • colloids
