The purpose of this paper is threefold. First, we review the existing literature on flow rates of water in carbon nanotubes. Data for the slip length which characterizes the flow rate are scattered over 5 orders of magnitude for nanotubes of diameter 0.81-10 nm. Second, we precisely compute the slip length using equilibrium molecular dynamics (EMD)(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Satisfaction of search (SOS) occurs when a lesion is "missed" after detecting another lesion in the same radiograph. The authors investigated the SOS effect in abdominal contrast studies. METHODS The authors measured detection of 23 plain film abnormalities in 43 patients who had plain film and contrast examinations. Each(More)
Data for the flow rate of water in carbon nanopores is widely scattered, both in experiments and simulations. In this work, we aim at precisely quantifying the characteristic large slip length and flow rate of water flowing in a planar graphene nanochannel. First, we quantify the slip length using the intrinsic interfacial friction coefficient between water(More)
Solid-state nanopores have been shown to be suitable for single molecule detection. While numerous modeling investigations exist for DNA within nanopores, there are few simulations of protein translocations. In this paper, we use atomistic molecular dynamics to investigate the translocation of proteins through a silicon nitride nanopore. The nanopore(More)
We study the effect of a neutral particle on the ionic flow through a nanopore using a basic uniform field theory and the coupled Poisson-Nernst-Planck and Navier-Stokes (PNP-NS) equations. We consider hourglass and cylindrical pore profiles and examine how the difference in pore shape changes the position dependence of the current change due to the(More)
Employing integrated nano- and microfluidic circuits for detecting and characterizing biological compounds through resistive pulse sensing technology is a vibrant area of research at the interface of biotechnology and nanotechnology. Resistive pulse sensing platforms can be customized to study virtually any particle of choice which can be threaded through a(More)
Recently we proposed a method to calculate the interfacial friction coefficient between fluid and solid at a planar interface. In this work we extend the method to cylindrical systems where the friction coefficient is curvature dependent. We apply the method to methane flow in carbon nanotubes, and find good agreement with non-equilibrium molecular dynamics(More)
Thermal-gradient induced transport of ionic liquid (IL) and water droplets through a carbon nanotube (CNT) is investigated in this study using molecular dynamics simulations. Energetic analysis indicates that IL transport through a CNT is driven primarily by the fluid-solid interaction, while fluid-fluid interactions dominate in water-CNT systems. Droplet(More)
The volumetric hydrogen capacity remains one of the most challenging criteria for on-board hydrogen storage system requirements. Here a new concept for hydrogen storage of porous aromatic frameworks (PAFs) impregnated with lithium-decorated fullerenes (Li6C60) is described. The loading of Li6C60 and the effect on the adsorption of hydrogen (H2) has been(More)
