Title: Dynamics of thermal capillary driven liquid plugs in microchannels
Authors: Huang, Xiaoyang.
Keywords: DRNTU::Engineering
Issue Date: 2009
Abstract: The researches on actuation and manipulation of micro-droplets in microchannels or on solid surfaces have been active in recent years. Based on the thermocapillary effect, thermal driven manipulations and temperature recycling of discrete droplets can be achieved in micro-devices, which can provide technical support for genomics, prot eomics, drug delivery, etc., in biochemical research. It is of interests in both academic understandings and practical applications to investigate the thermal driven actuation inside capillaries and planar microchannels.
