Droplet mixer based on electrowetting

The droplet represents a controlled reproducible volume for studying fast chemical reactions and performing parallel studies. One technique for manipulating droplets on a surface is electrowetting: a technique which uses applied electrical potentials to exert stress on the droplet and to produce deformation or movement.

Preliminary measurements of mixing are also presented.

Abstract

The manipulation of droplets on the microscale is a growing area of research for Lab-on-a-chip applications. The droplet represents a controlled reproducible volume for studying fast chemical reactions and performing parallel studies. One technique for manipulating droplets on a surface is electrowetting: a technique which uses applied electrical potentials to exert stress on the droplet and to produce deformation or movement. This paper presents a new design of an electrowetting based mixer intended to demonstrate a method for rapidly bringing together two droplets and mixing them. Preliminary measurements of mixing are also presented.
