An electrokinetically tunable optofluidic bi-concave lens
This paper numerically and experimentally investigates and demonstrates the design of an optofluidic in-plane bi-concave lens to perform both light focusing and diverging using the combined effect of pressure driven flow ...
Disposable flow cytometer with high efficiency in particle counting and sizing using an optofluidic lens
Flow cytometers are widely applied to environmental monitoring, industrial testing, and biochemical studies. Integrating a flow cytometer into microfluidic networks helps to miniaturize the system and make it portable for ...
Adhesive-based liquid metal radio-frequency microcoil for magnetic resonance relaxometry measurement
This paper reports the fabrication and characterization of an adhesive-based liquid-metal microcoil for magnetic resonance relaxometry (MRR). Conventionally, microcoils are fabricated by various techniques such as ...
Multi-functional, optofluidic, in-plane, bi-concave lens : tuning light beam from focused to divergent
The miniaturization and integration of in-plane micro-lenses into microfluidic networks for improving fluorescence detection has been widely investigated recently. This article describes the design and demonstration of an ...
High-throughput micromixers based on acoustic streaming induced by surface acoustic wave
Flow characteristics in microfluidic devices is naturally laminar due to the small channel dimensions. Mixing based on molecular diffusion is generally poor. In this article, we report the fabrication and characterization ...
Thermocoalescence of microdroplets in a microfluidic chamber
Droplet coalescence plays an important role in droplet-based microfluidics. This letter reports the phenomenon of thermocoalescence of two droplets in a chamber with a microheater. An integrated resistive sensor allows the ...
