Description:
The objective of this session is to bring together researchers from academia, national research laboratories and industry, to exchange ideas to advance research in fundamentals and applications in nanoscale electrokinetics. The fundamentals cover transport phenomena, electrokinetics and electrohydrodynamics, and effect of surface modification on electrokinetics in nanoslots, nanochannels and nanoporous materials. Applications include, but not limit to, nanofluidic devices for sample separation, preconcentration, DNA sequencing, sensor, nanofluidics based electronic devices (concentration polarization; current rectification, over-limiting current and second-kind electro-osmosis, desalination and energy conversion via streaming currents etc.). All experimental, theoretical, and computational works relevant to nanoscale electrokinetics are welcome.
