Das group has received funding from NextFlex on a project dedicated to study the reliability of printed and flexible hybrid electronics. In this project, University of Maryland (Prof. Das is a co-PI of the UMD team) has teamed up with Lockheed Martins and Binghamton University.
In this paper, we discover through simulations a new material: nanotube-salt-water hybrid, where water is entrapped in 0D state and anions are rendered highly immobile confined within a 1D nanostructure (namely Boron nitride nanotube). This is Bhargav’s 4th paper and Yanbin’s 19th paper from the group. Congrats both.
In this paper, we report the fabrication and performance of all additively manufactured conical inductors. This is SMIEL’s former postdoc Dr. Chenglin Yi’s 1st paper from the group.
In this paper, we quantify the effect of monovalent and multi-valent counterions in bridging interactions that ultimately dictate the height of the polyelectrolyte brushes (whose charges are screened by these counterions). This is Turash’s 6th and Harnoor’s 25th paper from the group. Congratulations All !!!
Dr. Xiao Zhang has joined SMIEL as a postdoctoral researcher to work on printed electronics. Welcome on board, Xiao.
Harnoor Singh Sachar (Ph.D. student fo SMIEL) defends his thesis (titled: “ATOMISTIC AND THEORETICAL DESCRIPTION OF LIQUID FLOWS IN POLYELECTROLYTE-BRUSH-GRAFTED NANOCHANNELS”) successfully. Congrats !!!!

In this paper, we employ all-atom molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to study the electroosmotic transport in nanochannels grafted with polyelectrolyte (PE) brushes. The paper reveals three key findings: (1) there is overscreening (OS) within the PE brush layer in presence of added salt (i.e., there are more number of screening counterions than needed to screen …
In this paper, we study the thermoosmotic transport in nanochannels grafted with polyelectrolyte (PE) brushes modeled using augmented Strong Stretching Theory (SST). This is Vishal’s 12th, Ankit’s 8th, and Harnoor’s 23rd paper from the group. Congratulations to all!!!!
Prof. Das delivered an invited talk on the topic “Computational Thermo-Fluidics for Modeling the Aerosol Jet 3D Printing” in the AICTE Sponsored Faculty Development Program organized by NIT Silchar.
