Capillary filling in nanochannels : modeling, fabrication and experiments
While capillary filling in channels of micrometers scale is experimentally verified to obey Washburn's law well, the speed of capillary filling in nanochannels is noticeably lower than described by Washburn's formula. This ...
Nanofluidic devices and their applications
Recent developments in micro- and nanotechnologies made possible the fabrication of devices integrating a deterministic network of nanochannels, i.e., with at least one dimension in a range from 1 to 100 nm. The proximity ...
Microfluidic platform for controlling the differentiation of embryoid bodies
Embryonic stem (ES) cells are pluripotent cells, which can differentiate into any cell type. This cell type has often been implicated as an eminent source of renewable cells for tissue regeneration and cellular replacement ...
Thermocapillary actuation of droplet in a planar microchannel
A study on thermocapillary actuation of liquid droplet in a planar microchannel has been carried out by both theoretical modeling and experimental characterization. The driving temperature gradients are provided by four ...
