As the Debye length is generally much larger than the spacecraft the spacecraft electrostatic potential influence extends over a volume much larger than the spacecraft.
Nanofluidic devices, such as organic or inorganic pores and channels, have primary dimensions comparable to the Debye length, and so they have been wildly used for the successful separation of DNA or biomolecular sensing down to the single-molecule level [6-10].
Ionic strength (I) of the buffer solution determines an important parameter, the Debye length the length in which mobile charge carriers screen out the external electric field, causing small charge movement (Fig.
