IMT seminar - Confined two-dimensional interfaces and capillaries


JCMB room 4325B


Friday, March 13, 2020 - 13:00 to 14:00

by Dr. Vasu Kalangi


Confined two-dimensional (2D) interfaces and capillaries continue attract intense interest due to the prospect of designing novel materials and viable membranes with on-demand properties. The present talk demonstrates the profound impact of very high van der Waals pressure on the trapped molecules at atomically thin 2D interfaces and, water/ion transport in graphene oxide membranes with sub-nm capillaries with a prospect for desalination and smart membrane applications. Finally, I will discuss the experiments that are currently underway to measure the flow of dilute ionic solutions through 2D nanocapillaries.


Vasu Kalangi is currently working as a Marie Curie Individual Research fellow at Ecole Normale Superieure – Paris. He previously worked as a research associate at the University of Manchester. He obtained his Ph.D in Physics from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. His current research work focuses on nanofluidic transport through 2D capillaries with atomic scale precision.
