August 2020: Vishal Sankar Sivasankar successfully defends his M.S. thesis

Vishal Sankar Sivasankar siccessfully defends his M.S. thesis on the topic “Electrokinetic transport in nanochannels grafted with backbone charged Polyelectrolyte brushes”. Vishal is the 5th M.S. student graduating from the group. His M.S. thesis work resulted in two high quality publications (one in Physical Review E and one in Physics of Fluids)….that apart, he has …

July 2020: Paper accepted in ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces

The paper employs molecular dynamics simulations for studying friction in graphene channels of height less than 1 nanometer as a function of graphene misalignment. The work is a collaborative work with University of Waterloo, and Dr. Enrique Wagemann (my former postdoc advisee and currently a faculty member in University of Concepcion, Chile) is the lead …

June 2020: Paper accepted in Physical Review E

In this paper, we report the theoretical model on the massive increase in electroosmotic transport in nanochannels grafted with Polyelectrolyte Brushes modled using augmented Strong Stretching Theory (SST). This is Vishal’s 9th paper, Ankit’s 6th paper, and Harnoor’s 19th paper from the group. Congrats All !!!!!

May 2020: Paper Accepted in Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics

In this paper, we develop a new theory to study the behavior, configuration, and electrostatics of polyelectrolyte (PE) brushes in large salt concentration. The findings match nicely with those predicted by our recent all-atom MD simulations of densely grafted PE brushes. This is Ankit’s 5th paper, Vishal’s 8th paper, and Harnoor’s 18th paper from the …

May 2020: Paper accepted in Langmuir

In this paper, we study the structure of nanoparticle-supported Lipid Bilayers formed by self-assembly mechanism. This study is done in collaboration with Dr. Ramamurthi of NIH. This is Haoyuan’s 15th, Parth’s 11th, and Yanbin’s 16th paper from the group. Congrats All !!!!

March 2020: Paper Accepted in Physics of Fluids

In this paper, we study the diffusioosmotic transport (in presence of an applied salt concentration gradient) in nanochannels grafted with backbone-charged polyelectrolyte brushes modelled using augmented Strong Stretching Theory. This is Vishal’s 7th paper, Harnoor’s 18th paper, and Ankit’s 4th paper from the group. Congrats All !!!!
