P18084: Microfluidics - Laminar Flow Mixing
/public/

Home

Project Summary Project Information

''

Micro-fluidics is an exciting field dealing with fluid flow through small microchannels on the order of 10um to 1mm. Flow exhibits different qualities on the microscale which can be taken advantage of for various applications. One specific application is in creating an inertial pump driven by the expansion and collapse of a bubble nucleating on a heated surface at a specific frequency. Our project is truly multidisciplinary as it comprises micro-electronic fabrication, fluid modeling analytically and numerically, and an experimental approach.

This project is sponsored by Hewlett-Packard Inc. with a primary objective of fabricating and testing a bubble driven inertial micro pump for HP research and development initiatives.
