Thermally mediated breakup of drops in microchannels
The authors used thermally induced surface tension gradients to manipulate aqueous droplets in microchannels. Control of the droplet breakup process was demonstrated. Droplet sorting can be achieved with temperatures above ...
Thermal mixing of two miscible fluids in a T-shaped microchannel
In this paper, thermal mixing characteristics of two miscible fluids in a T-shaped microchannel are investigated theoretically, experimentally, and numerically. Thermal mixing processes in a T-shaped microchannel are divided ...
Thermally mediated droplet formation at a microfluidic T-junction
This paper reports the investigation on the process of thermally mediated droplet formation at a microfluidic Tjunction. The temperature field generated by an integrated heater causes changes in properties of the fluids ...
Thermally mediated droplet formation in microchannels
Precise dispensing of microdroplets is an important process for droplet-based microfluidics. The droplet formation by shear force between two immiscible fluids depends on their flow rates, the viscosities, and the interfacial ...
Numerical modeling of tunable optofluidics lens based on combined effect of hydrodynamics and electroosmosis
A numerical model of liquid-core liquid-cladding optofluidics lens under the combined effect of hydrodynamics and electroosmosis are presented in this paper. In the numerical simulation, a combined formulation using only ...
