Brownian dynamics simulation of migration of DNA in structured microchannels
Elektrophorese ist eine der Haupttechniken, um DNA-Strange nach Lange zu trennen. Die Mobilitat von DNA in freier Losung ist unabhangig von der Grose des Molekuls. Daher wird diese normalerweise in
Statics and Dynamics of DNA in a Network of Nanofluidic Entropic Traps
A nanofluidic slit embedded with a lattice of square pits was used to entropically trap polymers. DNA in the system was confined to two dimensions and underwent self-assembly into discrete
Nanocapillary and nanopore array integrated through low-resolution patterning techniques for biomolecular analysis
This thesis describes the development of monolithically integrated, robust, and costeffective glass nanocapillaries and nanopores that can be utilized for the separation and detection of biomolecules.
Mechanism governing separation in microfluidic pinched flow fractionation devices
We present a computational investigation of the mechanism governing size-based particle separation in microfluidic pinched flow fractionation. We study the behavior of particles moving through a
The interplay between apparent viscosity and wettability in nanoconfined water.
Comparison of the experimental data with the model shows that interfacial viscous forces and compressive dissipation in nanoconfined water can decrease up to two orders of magnitude due to slippage, which offers a new understanding of interfacial fluids, which can be used to control flow at the nanoscale.
This thesis focuses on development of a multistage separation technology to circumvent the challenge caused by non-specific interactions in current single-stage magnetic separation techniques.
Sol-gel materials for optofluidics - process and applications
This Ph.D. thesis is concerned with the use of sol-gel materials in optofluidic applications and the physics of DNA molecules in nanoconfinement. The bottom-up formation of solid material, which is
Migration of DNA molecules through entropic trap arrays: a dissipative particle dynamics study
Dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) simulations of worm-like chain bead-spring models are used to explore the electrophoresis migration of DNA molecules traveling through narrow constrictions. The
