Fluidic Manipulation in Carbon Nanotubes


Jennifer R. Lukes

Global objective:

  • Develop novel methods for controlling fluid flow in nanochannels

Specific goal:

  • Determine influence of electric fields and ionic concentration on fluid/surface interfacial structure and channel flow rates

Application areas:

  • Biotechnology
  • Chemical analysis


  • Molecular dynamics simulations
  • Allows atomic level analysis

Conclusion and Impact:

  • Fluid monolayer structure and transport vary with density, temperature, chirality
  • Delivery/extraction of fluids to/from targeted locations can be controlled externally
