“Fundamental Fluid Flow Problems for Microfluidic and Self-Assembly Applications”
In this presentation, I will report on progress made regarding some fundamental aspects of fluid flow problems targeting microfluidic and self-assembly applications. Specifically, I will describe some of our solutions to efficient fluid mixing and particle manipulation in small fluidic devices. Emphasis will be given to the dynamics of neutral particles in both bulk liquids and at fluid-liquid interfaces, and to fluid mixing in channels of simple geometry. Much of our work uses combinations of fluid dynamics and electric field phenomena which we investigate using experimental, numerical and theoretical tools.
