Micro/Bio/Nanofluidics Unit Polymer Research in the News
29 Nov 2017
Although ubiquitous in the environment, vortices have proven difficult to capture and study in the laboratory. Recently, however, researchers from the Micro/Bio/Nanofluidics Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) created a way to examine these small-scale whirlpools with the aid of a device specially developed for this purpose. Published in the journal Physical Review X, their recent paper examines the formation of vortices in fluids with and without added polymers.
