Abstract

Progress in the state of the art of nanofabrication now allows devices that may enable the experimental sensing of bubble nucleation in nanochannels, and the direct measurement of the bubble nucleation rate in nanoconfined water and other fluids. In this paper we report on two aspects in achieving this goal: 1) new molecular dynamics simulations of nanobubble formation in nanoconfined argon and water model systems and 2) an ultrasensitive nanofluidic device architecture potentially able to detect individual nanobubble nucleation events.
