For this purpose, a novel liquid—gas lg separator was invented. Mcmullen Theses and Dissertations A pneumatically actuated PDMS based microfluidic devices were designed and fabricated by soft-lithography. Two types of molds were fabricated out of different material for this experiment. Insulator-based dielectrophoresis iDEP anble a microscale technique where particles are driven by polarization effects under a non-uniform electrical field created by the inclusion of insulators between two electrodes.

Nanoinjection is a method of DNA delivery that combines mechanical and electrical methods.

The dissipative particle dynamics DPD method is a relatively new computational method for modeling the dynamics of particles in laminar flows at the mesoscale. This channel integrates dielectrophoretic DEP microelectrodes and is infiltrated with suspended silica and tungsten trioxide nanoparticles. Electrosetting and liquid flow rates, concentration of PAAm solutions, and channel size An analogy between the reduced viscosity and slip-length models shows that the term slip-length elctrowetting misleading and that on surfaces which are smooth at the nanoscale it may be Cunacciaet al.

After liquid impact, it is A large portion of this high failure rate can be attributed to biofouling-related obstructions and infections. Even at low Reynolds numbers, momentum can impact the shape of hydrodynamically focused flow.

Abstract An acoustically activated micropump is fabricated and demonstrated using a single step lithography process and an off-chip acoustic energy source. The magnetic field in the flow direction affects the formation process and changes the size of the droplets.

Abstract The understanding of physical phenomena such as flow behaviour and mass transfer performance is needed in order to develop appropriate micromixers for industrial or biomedical applications. Abstract This article presents an on-demand, multi-step synthesis scheme that is capable of forming semi-permeable micro-capsules on an integrated microfluidic system.

Microfluidics and Nanofluidics 17 Decemberpp. This paper reports both experimental and numerical investigations of the formation process of ferrofluid droplets in a flow focusing configuration with and without an applied magnetic field. It is demonstrated that elextrowetting resonant frequency of such devices follows particular trends in response to the changes in the surrounding gas and its pressure. The lance then pierces the cell membranes, and the voltage on the lance is reversed, repelling the DNA into the cell.

Here we present microfluidic systems to achieve size- and density-based particle separation by adopting the sedimentation effect for a size-based particle sorting technique utilizing microscale hydrodynamics, called pinched-flow fractionation PFF. The tangential momentum accommodation coefficient TMAC was investigated experimentally from the mass flow rate through a single microtube under the slip flow and the early part of the transition regime.

CiteULike organises scholarly or academic papers or literature and provides bibliographic which means it makes contacct for universities and higher education establishments.

While unfortunately, few studies have so far been made for the droplet generation rules in those devices. This thesis describes the needle array design requirements and the Developing a reliable method for depositing energetic materials will allow for the near-seamless integration of electromechanical systems and energetic material, and, in turn, provide the pathway for security and selective destruction that is needed.

Here, we show that propulsion for the directed motion of water droplets levitating on heated ratchet surfaces in the Leidenfrost film boiling regime is significantly enhanced as the ratchet period decreases down to micro- and sub-micrometers. Electrowetting on dielectric EWOD is a technique for reducing the apparent contact angle of a fluid droplet, which has many promising applications in the fields of optics, digital displays, and lab-on-a-chip research.

A pneumatically actuated PDMS based microfluidic devices were designed and fabricated by soft-lithography. Microfluidics and Nanofluidics 5 Februarypp. Abstract The internal motions inside a liquid meniscus in the so-called liquid cone-jet mode, which can occur upon stimulation by a coflowing gas sheath in flow focusing, are explored by both numerical simulation and experimental visualization.

Micro actuators are a common type of DMD that employ a diaphragm supported by torsional hinges, which deform during actuation and are critical for the devices to have high stability and reliability. In this work, piezoelectric inkjet printing was used to selectively deposit energetic materials.


The polyimide layers are used for fluid channels defined by copper sacrificial layers.

It helps undergraduates and postgraduates. The corresponding elastic moduli were 5. In this thesis, a design is presented for a novel single circuit device for achieving continuous droplet motion, by using the current-rectifying properties of valve metals to create diode-like behavior. Abstract A chemically powered channelless elecgrowetting device was designed, fabricated, and characterized.
