Microdroplet formation of water and nanofluids in heat-induced microfluidic T-junction
This paper reports experimental investigations on the droplet formation and size manipulation of deionized water (DIW) and nanofluids in a microfluidic T-junction at different temperatures. Investigations of the effect of ...
Thermally controlled droplet formation in flow focusing geometry : formation regimes and effect of nanoparticle suspension
This paper reports experimental investigations on the droplet formation of deionized water and a nanofluid in a heat-induced microfluidic flow focusing device. Besides the effect of temperature, the effects of nanoparticle ...
Thermally mediated control of liquid microdroplets at a bifurcation
The ability to precisely control the motion of droplets is essential in droplet-based microfluidics. It serves as the basis for various droplet-based devices. This paper presents a thermal control technique for microdroplets ...
Formation and manipulation of ferrofluid droplets at a microfluidic T-junction
This paper reports the formation and manipulation of ferrofluid droplets at a microfluidic T-junction in the presence of a permanent magnetic field. A small circular permanent magnet with a diameter of 3 mm is used to ...
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 ...
