In this paper a dynamic theory for the inverted Cheerios effect (multiple drops interacting on a soft solid) is proposed. This paper is the result of Dr. Das’ work with Prof. Snoeijer’s group at University of Twente.
In this paper analytical Poisson-Boltzmann formulation has been provided to show a highly intriguing sitauion where a lipid bilayer plasma membrane may develop a positive zeta potential. This is Shayandev’s14th paper and Jing’s 3rd paper from the group….heartiest congratulations both !!!!
In this paper, a new method for quantifying the deposition rate in Aerosol Jet 3-D printing, namely the fabrication of inkewells, has been proposed. This is SMIEL’s first collaborative work with the group of Dr. Daniel Hines in the LPS. This is also the first paper of Dr. Yuan Gu (postdoc in SMIEL) in the […]
Prof. Siddhartha Das gives a presentation on “Wetting of Complex Interfaces” at the ME@UMD seminar series.
SMIEL PhD student has been awarded the STLE Scholarship. He has received $2000 for this award.
Prof. Das will collaborate with Dr. Kumaran Ramamurthi of NCI to study Curvature-driven membrane-protein interactions
Prof. Das and Prof. Dasgupta teamed up to win this research grant. The UMD team collaborated with Lockheed Martin, GE Global Research, Optomec, Intrinsiq, and Binghamton University on this grant. Click here for the news.
Prof. Das hoods SMIEL’s first PhD Dr. Guang Chen. Here is the picture
In this paper, we develop a scaling theory and perform MD simulations to describe the equilibrium of polymer brushes in weak interpenetration regime. This is Parth’s first paper and Shayandev’s 13th paper from the group. More importantly, this is group’s first paper in MD simulations of polymer brushes….congrats!!!
In this paper, we use MD simulations to establish that drops spread on superhydrophobic surfaces by the bending of the air-liquid interface. This is Yanbin’s first first-authored paper and second paper from the group. This is also Joseph’s 3rd paper from the group.
