Micro and Nanofluidics

The physics of fluids at the micro- and nanoscale can be quite different from macrofluidic behavior. Here we study disturbing bubbles in microchannels found in ink jet printing. By patterning surfaces on sub-micron scales we try to identify individual 'nanobubbles' which may lead to a quantitative understanding of wall slip. These patterned surfaces may also serve as nucleation sites for cavitation bubbles generated through intense negative pressures.
