Unraveling the Behavior of Liquids at the Nanoscale
08 Apr 2005 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Haim H. Bau
To better understand the transport of simple and complex liquids under extreme confinement conditions, our research group is conducting fluid flow experiments in conduits consisting of carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes are a convenient material with which to work for several reasons. First, carbon nanotubes can be fabricated with diameters ranging from a fraction of a nanometer to many several hundreds of nanometers, allowing one to conduct experiments with various tube sizes.
