About the book

Microfluidics and Nanofluidics referred to a technology where fluid flows are from the macroscale down to the nanoscale traditionally used as key components of control and sensing systems. Nowadays, the research and application areas of Microfluidics and Nanofluidics have been greatly expanded to advanced materials, biochemistry, new energy, single-cell/single-molecule studies, human health, and so forth. Microfluidics and Nanofluidics deal with transport phenomena, i.e., mass, momentum, and heat transfer, in the micrometer or nanometer range, and conventional fluid dynamics cannot be directly used in this area. The possible challenge in fluid properties must be considered. Thus, in the last two decades, the fundamental theories, as well as their application, have been rapidly in Microfluidics and Nanofluidics. Therefore, this book aims to host original research or review works addressing the fundamentals and applications of any functional flow in Microfluidics and Nanofluidics. The potential topics include all aspects of microfluidics, nanofluidics, and lab-on-a-chip science and technology, it might be (but are not limited to) fundamental principles of micro-and nanoscale phenomena like flow, mass transport and reactions, theoretical models, and numerical simulation with experimental and/or analytical proof, micromixer device, and particle manipulation. Experimental and numerical studies are welcome.

About the editor

Mingzhou Yu

China Jiliang University

Mingzhou Yu is now a Professor at China Jiliang University and a Guest Professor at Key Laboratory of Aerosol Chemistry and Physics, Chinese Academy of Science. He received his PhD degree from Zhejiang University in 2008 with the major fluid mechanism. During the time period between 2009 and 2012, he moved to Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, as a Alexander von Humboldt researcher where he worked with Prof. Gerhard Kasper and Dr. Martin Seipenbusch. Since 2013, he joined Prof. Junji Cao's research group as a guest Professor at Key Laboratory of Aerosol Chemistry and Physics, Chinese Academy of Science. During the time period between 2013 and 2016, he worked in The Hongkong Polytechnic University and Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain, as a research associate or postdoc researcher. He is now leading a Aerosol Science and Technology Laboratory supported by Zhejiang Special Provincial Support in CJLU. He has published more than 90 cited articles and five books (or chapters).

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Nera Butigan

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 preparing their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines to 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.
