Nano Main Field: One of the main goals of scientific research nowadays is to develop methods to prompt and control natural processes at nanometer and micrometer resolutions for advancing technological capabilities at such length scales. Examples are the assembly of molecular electronic building blocks into operational patterns, controlling particulate flow in micro- and nano-channels for lab-on-a-chip applications, developing materials with nanometric morphology (nanomaterials), etc.

We use the natural micron and nanometer scales embedded in the motion of high frequency surface and bulk acoustic waves, which we excite using dedicated piezoelectric platforms, to influence such physical processes.

Research Interests:

Physics of high frequency acoustic waves and flow

Chemical and medical applications of Micro/NanoFluidic platforms

Colloidal systems: Pattern formation in nanoparticle systems

Thin film flow under the influence of molecular and acoustic forces

High frequency vibration induced wetting
