Many-body effects in nanoscale fluid transport

Abstract : This thesis explores several phenomena that arise in nanoscale fluid transport due to inter-particle correlations. We show that in nanoscale channels, the walls affect not only the fluid motion, but also its interactions. As a result, we predict enhanced ionic correlations in confined electrolytes, with consequences ranging from ionic Cou- lomb blockade to memory effects. We further explore how correlations between interfacial water and electron dynamics in the channel wall result in a quantum contribution to hydrodynamic friction. Finally, we present the development of an experimental setup for measuring water flow through two-dimensional channels.
