Modeling, fabrication and characterization of a polymeric micromixer based on sequential segmentation
Effective and fast mixing is important for many microfluidic applications. In many cases, mixing is limited by molecular diffusion due to constrains of the laminar flow in the microscale regime. According to scaling law, ...
Reciprocating thermocapillary plug motion in an externally heated capillary
This paper reports the concept and experimental results of reciprocating thermocapillary motion of a liquid plug in microchannels. This paper first describes a one-dimensional analytical model for the transport of microplugs ...
Manipulation of ferrofluid droplets using planar coils
In this letter, the authors report a system for magnetic manipulation of ferrofluid droplets and their dynamic behavior. The magnetic field was generated by an array of planar coils, which were fabricated on a double-sided ...
A method for simultaneously determining the zeta potentials of the channel surface and the tracer particles using microparticle image velocimetry technique
The zeta potentials of channel surfaces and tracer particles are of importance to the design of electrokinetic microfluidic devices, the characterization of channel materials, and the quantification of the microparticle ...
