In this paper, we study the streaming current and energy conversion in nanochannels grafted with poly-zwitterionic brushes…this is Guang’s 20th paper, Jahin’s 2nd paper, and Harnoor’s 8th paper from the group. Congratulations to all!!!
In this paper, we discover the real energetics of ions adsorption at the air-water interfaces by accounting for the effect of interactions between ions and capillary waves…this is Yanbin’s 7th paper, Shayandev’s 23rd paper, Parth’s 5th paper, and Hoyuan’s 10th paper from the group…..congrats all….
In this paper, we propose a new fabrication method for 3D printing inductors with commercially-relevant inductances. This is Yuan’s 4th paper from the group….many congratulations !!!!!
In this paper, we develop a theory to show how functionalizing nanochannels with end-charged polyelectrolyte brushes can enhance the thermoosmotic water transport in nanochannels…this is Raja’s 2nd paper, Haoyuan’s 9th paper, and Harnoor’s 7th paper from the group….congratulations to all!!!!!
In this paper, we conduct Molecular Dynamics Simulations and provide a scaling theory for probing the shearing and lubrication action in weakly interpenetrated polymer brush bilayers. This is Parth’s 4th paper from the group. Congrats Parth !!!!
The title of the thesis was “ENERGY CONVERSION IN NANOCHANNELS GRAFTED WITH POLYELECTROLYTE AND POLYZWITTERION BRUSHES”….Congrats Jahin !!!!!
SMIEL PhD student has been awarded the prestigious STLE (Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers) Scholarship. Congrats Parth !!!!!
Prof. Siddhartha Das has been awarded the IIT Kharagpur inaugural Young Alumni Achievers Award (YAAA) for successful IITKGP alumni under 40 years. The announcement can be found in this link
In this paper, we describe theoretically a most remarkable situation where end-charged polyelectrolyte brushes significantly enhance the diffusioosmotic transport in nanochannels by localizing the electric double layer charge density away from the channel walls…this is Raja’s first paper, Harnoor’s 6th, and Haoyuan 8th paper from the group. A BIG congratulations to all of them !!!!!
Prof. Das delivers an invited talk titled “Modeling Transport in Microfluidic Systems: Towards Better Equipping Ourselves for Solving Biomedical Engineering Problems” at US Food and Drug Administration
