Investigation of Transport Phenomena in Nanochannels and its Applications in Energy Conversion using COMSOL Multiphysics
Well‐designed and controlled nanochannels are ideal physical modeling systems to study fluidics in a precise manner. Electrokinetics refers to transport phenomena related to the non‐electroneutral EDL, which is created to neutralize the surface charges produced on surface. Surface charges are produced by the dissociation of surface functional groups. We created a mathematical model of a nanofluidic transistor in COMSOL Multiphysics® and simulated the streaming current in silica nanochannels.
