This self-study course is designed to be taken at your convenience and on your own schedule. You have 90 days to finish the course once you begin.
The course covers the theory, fabrication, and applications of microscale and nanoscale systems. Three specific application areas are discussed in detail to demonstrate the wide range of applicability of these systems. These application areas are energy, water, and chemical and biological separations. The course will give you a broad understanding of the underlying principles that determine the operation of microfluidic and nanofluidic systems
You will learn:
- The underlying principles with governing equations that determine the operation of microfluidic and nanofluidic systems
- Basic and advanced fabrication and device characterization methods
- The applications of microfluidic and nanofluidic systems to problems of energy, water, and chemical and biological separations
Who should attend:
Engineers, managers and students who wish to learn more about the application of nanomaterials, microsystems, and nanosystems
Shaurya Prakash graduated with a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He started as a faculty member at the Ohio State University in the Fall of 2009. His research focuses on developing microsystems and nanosystems for applications in water purification, renewable and alternate energy, and chemical and biological separations. Prof. Prakash has published extensively in microfluidics and nanofluidics and is active in organizing microfluidics and MEMS sessions at ASME meetings. His group addresses fundamental scientific questions and strives to develop new technologies for problems important to modern societal needs. The research work is multi-disciplinary in nature and often requires bridging several fields including mechanical engineering, surface chemistry, and materials science.
