Summary and Info
The Microfluidics and Nanofluidics Handbook: Two-Volume Set comprehensively captures the cross-disciplinary breadth of micro- and nanofluidics, which encompass the biological sciences, chemistry, physics and engineering applications. To fill the knowledge gap between engineering and the basic sciences, the editors pulled together key individuals, well known in their respective areas, to author chapters that help graduate students, scientists, and practicing engineers understand the overall area of microfluidics and nanofluidics. Highlights Discusses basic microbiology and chemistry related to microfluidics Explains fabrication techniques Emphasizes applications of microfluidics in the energy sector Describes micro-fuel cells and lab-on-a-chip Presents example tables, graphs, and equations Covering physics and transport phenomena along with life sciences and related applications, Volume One: Chemistry, Physics, and Life Science Principles provides readers with the fundamental science background that are required for the study of microfluidics and nanofluidics. Volume Two: Fabrication, Implementation, and Applications focuses on topics related to experimental and numerical methods, followed by chapters on fabrications and other applications, ranging from aerospace to biological systems. Both volumes include as much interdisciplinary knowledge as possible to reflect the inherent nature of this area, making them valuable to students and practitioners.
