Small Scale Transport Research Laboratory


We use experiment, theory, and computation to study transport of mass, momentum, and heat at length scales that range from millimeters to nanometers and time scales that range from seconds to nanoseconds. Our goal is to explore fundamental scientific phenomena at small scales in order to develop new technology and to explain macro scale phenomena, occurring in nature and engineering. Applications, currently being studied, include the spreading of mass on and through substrates, microfluidics, multi scale patterns of molecules and particles, and the influence of seismic waves on natural habitats.
