Abstract: With enhancing mixing in micro- or nanofluidic applications in mind, the problem of maximizing fluid transport across a fluid interface subject to an available energy budget is examined. The optimum cross-interface perturbing velocity is obtained explicitly in the time-periodic instance using an Euler-Lagrange constrained optimization approach. Numerical investigations which calculate transferred lobe areas and cross-interface flux are used to verify that the predicted strategy achieves optimum transport. Explicit active protocols for achieving this optimal transport are suggested.
