    • Effective Thermo-Capillary Mixing in Droplet Microfluidics Integrated with a Microwave Heater 

      Yesiloz, Gurkan; Boybay, Muhammed S.; Ren, Carolyn L. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2017-02-07)
      In this study, we present a microwave-based microfluidic mixer that allows rapid mixing within individual droplets efficiently. The designed microwave mixer is a coplanar design with a small footprint, which is fabricated ...
    • Experimental study on droplet generation in flow focusing devices considering a stratified flow with viscosity contrast 

      Chen, Xiaoming; Ren, Carolyn L. (Elsevier BV, 2017-05-18)
      High throughput analysis is highly demanded in a variety of chemical reactions. Droplet microfluidics offers unique advantages over traditional multi-well plate systems for high throughput analysis such as providing a ...
    • Harnessing surface-bound enzymatic reactions to organize microcapsules in solution 

      Shklyaev, Oleg E.; Shum, Henry; Sen, Ayusman; Balazs, Anna C. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2016-03)
      By developing new computational models, we examine how enzymatic reactions on an underlying surface can be harnessed to direct the motion and organization of reagent-laden microcapsules in a fluid-filled microchannel. In ...
    • Microwave temperature measurement in microfluidic devices 

      Wong, David; Yesiloz, Gurkan; Boybay, Muhammed S.; Ren, Carolyn L. (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2016-05-10)
      In spite of various existing thermometry methods for microfluidic applications, it remains challenging to measure the temperature of individual droplets in segmented flow since fast moving droplets do not allow sufficient ...
    • Synthetic quorum sensing in model microcapsule colonies 

      Shum, Henry; Balazs, Anna C. (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2017-07-24)
      Biological quorum sensing refers to the ability of cells to gauge their population density and collectively initiate a new behavior once a critical density is reached. Designing synthetic materials systems that exhibit ...
