Microfluidic Device Helps Convert Chaotic Waveform into Stable Helical Form

Microfluidic Device Helps Convert Chaotic Waveform into Stable Helical Form

Industrial wet spinning processes produce fibers from polymers and other materials by using tiny needles to eject continuous jets of liquid precursors. The electrically charged liquids ejected from the needles normally exhibit a chaotic "whipping" structure as they enter a secondary liquid that surrounds the microscopic jets. [More]
Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip Technologies Help Develop Piezoelectric Transducer-Powered Acoustofluidic Pump

Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip Technologies Help Develop Piezoelectric Transducer-Powered Acoustofluidic Pump

Researchers at Penn State have demonstrated an acoustofluidic pump powered by a piezoelectric transducer about the size of a quarter. This reliable, inexpensive, programmable pump is a crucial feature for lab-on-a-chip devices that could make the diagnosis of many global life-threatening diseases easy and affordable. [More]
