A Mathematical Theory of Microscale Hydrodynamic Cloaking and Shielding Using Electro-osmosis


Rendering objects invisible by cloaking them with metamaterials have made rapid progress in the past decade. However, the difficulties of metamaterials manufacturing have limited its development. In this talk, the speaker will discuss the mathematical analysis of hydrodynamic cloaking and shielding via electro-osmosis in a microfluidic chamber that does not rely on metamaterials. Based on layer potential technique, the conditions that can ensure the occurrence of the microscale hydrodynamic cloaking and shielding are established. Finally, several numerical examples are served to validate his theoretical analysis. (This talk is based on joint works with MIAO Zhiqiang (HNU) and LIU Hongyu (CityU).)
