Abstract
Like solids, liquids show very different properties compared with bulk. For example, bulk water is used as a lubricant but nanoscale water causes friction due to its viscoelasticity. In this talk, I will discuss physical properties of two form of nanoscale water: nanomeniscus and hydration layer. Novel platform of nanofabrication with nanoscale liquids is also discussed.
