Modelling and simulation of electrokinetic transport in micro-scale over hydrophobic surface

This talk will provide an overview on recent progress on modeling electrically driven transport phenomena associated with the microfluidic devices. Microfluidics, a technology characterized by the engineered manipulation of fluids at the submillimetre scale, has shown considerable promise for improving diagnostics and biology research. In recent years considerable progress has been made in the field of microfluidics. The micro total analysis ( μTAS) and other microfluidic devices being fabricated for chemical, biological and biomedical applications, involves flows of electrolytes and suspensions in micro- sized systems influenced by external forces. Study of such type of flows is referred as microfluidics. The burgeoning field of microfluidics continues to expand its impact on society, finding extensive uses in areas ranging from the research laboratory to the health care industry. One of the most promising applications of microfluidics is the ’lab-on-a-chip’ device. The wellestablished mean-field based approach for transport of ionic solutions considers the long range Columbic interactions between the ions. These theories fail when the crowding of ions becomes significant. In this talk the mathematical model for the transport of ionic fluids will be improved by considering the short range ion steric repulsion due to finite size of the hydrated ions and ion-solvent interactions leading to dielectric decrement and modification of the solvent viscosity. The improved model will be implemented to analyse complicated micro-scale transport phenomena and to validate experimental hypothesis. In recent years, electrokinetic energy conversion for pressure-driven flow through hydrophobic nanochannels has attracted increasing attention from numerous researchers. The laterally mobile adsorbed surface charge modifies the slip velocity condition, which is coupled with the induced streaming potential. Based on the modified model a numerical study supplemented with theoretical analysis on streaming current generation and electrochemical energy conversion involving hydrophobic surface with physiosorbed ions will be illustrated.

Mathematical Modelling of Low dimensional Core-Shell Structures for Future Opto-Electronic Applications

The impact of shell structure on the exciton and biexciton binding energies has been studied in core-shell quantum structures using Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin (WKB) approximation. For excitons, the binding is caused by the Coulombic as well as the confinement potentials while biexciton binding energy is determined by taking into account the exchange and correlation effects. The exciton binding energy was found to increase initially with increasing shell thickness which reaches saturation at larger shell thickness. On the other hand, the biexciton binding energy exhibits a crossover from the bonding to the antibonding state with increasing shell thickness for the smaller core radius of the quantum dot.

Industry 4.0 and its applications in industrial Growth

Industry 4.0, often referred to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, represents a transformative paradigm shift in manufacturing and industry. It is characterized by the integration of digital technologies, data analytics, the Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence (AI) into every aspect of industrial processes. This revolution is not merely about technological advancements; it is a holistic approach to optimizing productivity, efficiency, and sustainability across industries. This talk will explore the concept of Industry 4.0 and its applications in driving industrial growth.
