    Abstract

    The paper gives a brief overview of nanofluidic theory, with an emphasis on transport processes in nanochannels. It subsequently reports on recent progress in nanofluidic research in the BIOS/Lab-on-a-Chip group, especially DNA electrophoresis in 20-nm high nanoslits, AC electroosmotic flow in nanochannels, and two-phase flow in nano/microfluidic devices.
