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 ...
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 ...
