  • About the Laboratory & Research Area
  • EES Laboratory is discovering and developing a fundamental electrokinetic phenomenon in nano-scale platform by rigorous experimental theory. We revolutionize nanofluidic system as a tool for environment and energy-applications, and develop a deeper understanding of the underlying fundamental nanoscale science and electrokinetics. The objective is to use the micro/nano hybrid device as a model system for characterizing nonlinear nano-scale electrokinetics and related phenomena and to develop novel engineering devices for nanofluidic desalination, water purification, seawater mining and liquid state semiconductors applications.
