Multiscale fluidic structure
The integrated silicon pillar array is composed of 18 micron tall 800 nm wide pillars in a hexagonal arrangement. The interstitial spaces between pillars form an ordered network of nanofluidic channels. The bifurcating (tree-like) system of channels provide an interface between the network of nanopores and the macroscopic experimental environment.
