Description

Summary:

Nanofluidic technology enables the manipulation and measurement of materials and phenomena in fluids at the nanoscale. We lead the development of innovative nanofluidic devices, methods, and measurement science at NIST, with applications ranging from the dimensional and optical characterization of nanoparticles [1] to non-equilibrium analysis of biomolecular free-energy [2]. Our research in nanofluidics dovetails with quantitative approaches to localization microscopy and particle tracking, and is often supported by numerical simulation. Our project is collaborative and interdisciplinary, and we seek motivated applicants with strong backgrounds in the physical sciences and engineering.
