On nonequilibrium shrinkage of supercritical CO2 droplets in a water-carrier microflow
(AIP Publishing, 2018-07-16)
We report an experimental study on the hydrodynamic shrinkage of supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)) microdroplets during a nonequilibrium process. After scCO(2 )microdroplets are generated by water shearing upon a ...
Numerical Study on Single Flowing Liquid and Supercritical CO2 Drop in Microchannel: Thin Film, Flow Fields, and Interfacial Profile
Taylor segments, as a common feature in two- or multi-phase microflows, are a strong flow pattern candidate for applications when enhanced heat or mass transfer is particularly considered. A thin film that separates these ...
A droplet-based microfluidic platform for rapid immobilization of quantum dots on individual magnetic microbeads
(Springer Nature, 2018-06-01)
Quantum dots (QDs) provide opportunities for the development of bioassays, biosensors, and drug delivery strategies. Decoration of the surface of QDs offers unique functions such as resistance to non-specific adsorption, ...
An integrated microfluidic device for the sorting of yeast cells using image processing
(Springer Nature, 2018-02-23)
The process of detection and separation of yeast cells based on their morphological characteristics is critical to the understanding of cell division cycles, which is of vital importance to the understanding of some diseases ...
Hydrodynamic shrinkage of liquid CO2 Taylor drops in a straight microchannel
(IOP Publishing, 2018-02-12)
Hydrodynamic shrinkage of liquid CO2 drops in water under a Taylor flow regime is studied using a straight microchannel (length/width similar to 100). A general form of a mathematical model of the solvent-side mass transfer ...
Simulation before fabrication: a case study on the utilization of simulators for the design of droplet microfluidic networks
(Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2018-10-10)
The functional performance of passively operated droplet microfluidics is sensitive with respect to the dimensions of the channel network, the fabrication precision as well as the applied pressure because the entire network ...
