This book provides an introduction to nanofluidics in a simple manner and can be easily followed by senior undergraduate students, graduate students, and other researchers who have some background in fluid mechanics. The book covers the main topics about the fundamentals of nanofluidics and how it differs from classic fluid mechanics. It also describes the methodologies of nanofluidics, including numerical approaches, e.g., molecular dynamics simulation and experimental techniques. Fundamental physics and new phenomena in nanofluidics are the major concerns of this book.

The author goes on to discuss nanocofinements and the parameters that affect the fluid dynamics at the nanoscale and make flow analysis complex. These parameters accommodate rich, new flow phenomena that may not be observed at the macro- and microscale. Although not all of the new phenomena will find widespread applications, the physics underlying these new phenomena may offer insights for other fields. This is one of the reasons why this book emphasizes the mechanisms of various flow fashions. 

  • Explores the unique characteristics of nanoscale flows and related properties
  • Reviews the latest research of nanoscale ion transport and its applications
  • Discusses the fluid flows in nanoconfinements in a unique manner based on the author's original research
  • Incorporates important applications of nanofluidics throughout.
