New Frontiers in Nanofluidics

January 07, 2009

Location: HKUST, China

Organizers: Robert Austin, Princeton

Biology works at the nanoscale, and it works in a wet environment full of water and other molecular solutes. It is becoming clear that at the nanoscale the physics of transport of fluids is vastly different then Navier-Stokes macroscale hydrodynamics. Further, polymers at nanoscale confinement exhibit new forms of statistical mechanical behavior which we do not understand well but which is extremely important biologically. This nanoworld is now accessible experimentally and theoretically, and we hope to explore the frontiers of this important physical and biological area.
