Abstract

To bridge the gap between single and isolated pore systems to multipore systems, such as membranes and electrodes, we studied an array of nanochannels with varying interchannel spacing that controlled the degree of channel communication. Instead of treating them as individual channels connected in parallel or an assembly like a homogeneous membrane, this study resolves the pore-pore interaction. We found that increased channel isolation leads to current intensification, whereas at high voltages electroconvective effects control the degree of communication via suppression of the diffusion layer growth.
