About the book

During the past decades the emerging field of micro- and nano-fluidics has attracted tremendous research interest worldwide and a great progress has been made particularly in their fabrication, performance and applications. Consequently, many applications and commercial production of numerous microfluidic systems and devices are available today. However, this multidisciplinary field is in its infancy and there are many important areas where these new technologies and their real-world applications can radically improve performance and quality of life.

This book will cover a wide range of important areas of micro- and nano-fluidic systems and devices starting from fundamentals, theories and principles, and cutting-age microfabrication technologies to its applications in energy, lab-on-chip, and biomedicine. It will also present the current state of the art research and advances of this emerging field besides performance evaluation of these technologies through experimental and numerical means. This book will provide an interdisciplinary approach to the readership and is expected to be of interest to anyone involved in studying, research, design and fabrication, or manufacturing micro- and nano-scaled fluidic devices and systems.

S. M. Sohel Murshed

University of Lisbon

Dr. S. M. Sohel Murshed is a professor of Thermofluids and Energy Conversion Technologies at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) of the University of Lisbon, Portugal. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from the Nanyang Technological University of Singapore in 2007. Previously, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at universities in Singapore and the USA. He has so far authored/co-authored 8 books, 23 book chapters, and more than 130 papers in leading international journals and conferences. He has Google Scholar Citations of 6016 with h-index of 28 and several of his papers have been classified as highly cited papers by ISI Web of Science. He was the management committee of a European COST action on nanofluids and also serves as a group leader of the Action and is currently a key member of ongoing EC CIG project on nanofluids. He is an Editor of the Journal of Nanofluids since 2012 and is an Associate Editor of Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry. He is also a board member of several other international journals. He regularly serves as an expert evaluator for the EC and for funding agencies of different countries. He also acts as a reviewer for many international PhD theses as well as about 40 international journals including numbers of top-level ones like \"Nature\" His main research interests include nanofluids, ionanofluids, micro- and nanoscale heat transfer, thermophysical properties of fluids, nanomaterials-fluids systems, heat exchangers, microfluidics, advanced energy, and cooling technologies.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
