Using ESPResSo we are investigating many different systems, especially in confined geometries, like the transport properties of ionic solutions in nanopores during DNA translocation, electro-osmotic flow in slit pores and properties of suspensions of confined charged colloids, in particular in slit and cylindrical pores. more...
have a melting point below 100°C. ILs have been known for more than 90 years, however, recently found members of this class have shown promise in applications in electrochemistry, analytics, technology, and engineered fluids. Many ILs are liquid at room temperature, with some freezing at temperatures around -90°C. Due to their salt like structure they usually exhibit a negligible vapor pressure up to high temperatures, making them particularly suited for "green chemistry". IL's also exhibit interesting solvation or coordination properties, suggesting that one could potentially use them as "designer solvents". more...
processes in porous media. Despite that fact fundamental concepts of twophase flow on macroscopic scales still remain unclear. The predictive power of the most commonly used extended multiphase Darcy theory is at best limited to simple problems where neither hysteresis nor dynamic effects like trapping nor varying residual saturations have a substantial impact on the solutions. more...
industrial and scientific applications. Computer simulations require accurate three-dimensional microscopic structure data as input and efficient numerical algorithms for fluid flow simulations. Natural porous media such as carbonates and clay filled sandstones exhibit heterogeneities on many scales and cannot be modeled by existing modeling techniques. more...
