Abstract

The second part of the twentieth century witnessed a revolution in materials science that allowed researchers to fabricate and control complex structures with precision that was approaching the scales that were previously encountered only in sophisticated biological systems. This nanotechnology revolution pushed scientists to reassess conventional understanding of the nature of mass transport, as well as the physical laws that govern transport behavior and selectivity in these structures (Noy et al. 2007; Schoch et al. 2008; Bocquet and Charlaix 2010). This reassessment, in turn, produced two new and vibrant research fields: nanofluidics and nanopore-based sensing.
