Abstract

The status of current understanding of the hydrodynamic phenomena accompanied the motion of a nanometer-sized particles through a nanotube was discussed. The motion of such small suspended particles in nano-devices in strongly influenced by the presence of surface forces and by the random molecular motion of the suspending fluid. The effects of roughness on both the channel walls and the suspended particles were observed. The results show the effects of the random fluctuations due to the molecular character of the fluid.
