We describe studies of the pressure driven flow of several classical fluids through lithographically produced channels in which one dimension, the channel height h, is in the micron or nanometer size range. The measured flow rates are compared with theoretical predictions assuming no-slip boundary conditions at the walls of the channel. The results for water agree well with this prediction for h as small as 40 nm (our smallest channels). However, for hexane, decane, hexadecane, and silicone oil… CONTINUE READING
