    Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

    Abstract

    Surface tension effects become very prominent at the nano scale due to the high surface to volume ratio. One example is the occurrence of capillary negative pressure, which could be directly observed and measured in a nanochannel due to the deformation of the elastic channel capping under the pressure load
