The Multiscale Mechanics and Nanotechnology Laboratory is housed in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering of the University of Illinois at Chicago. Research activities focus on fundamental and practical aspects of fluid and solid mechanics, especially at length scales ranging from a few millimeters down to the nanometer level. Both experimental and theoretical aspects of fluid and solid mechanics phenomena are investigated. The laboratory, which occupies 2200 sq. ft. of floor space, is directed by Prof. A. L. Yarin, who supervises graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. A broad overview of the principal research areas pursued within the laboratory is summarized below:
