Overview

The Microscale Physicochemical Hydrodynamics Laboratory (µPHYL) is directed by Professor Chuan-Hua Chen and located at Hudson Hall 181 and 183 (parking: PG-IV) at Duke University . Our research deals with experimental and theoretical investigations of small-scale physicochemical hydrodynamics, where transport and interfacial phenomena closely interact with each other. Through manipulation of interfacial tension, e.g. actively using electric fields or passively using surface structures, we are developing innovative solutions for applications ranging from bioanalytical assays to microelectronics cooling (overview figure). For further information about the research at µPHYL, visit the research and facility pages.
