Title: Non-scaling behavior of electroosmotic flow in voltage-gated nanopores

Abstract

Ionic size effects and electrostatic correlations result in the non-monotonic dependence of the electrical conductivity on the pore size. For ion transport at a high gating voltage, the conductivity oscillates with the pore size due to a significant overlap of the electric double layers.
