Increasing the fluid flow velocity in a microchannel using 3D non-metallic electrodes

Increasing the fluid flow velocity in a microchannel using 3D non-metallic electrodes
Handling and manipulating fluid using AC-electroosmosis pumping has recently shown some success. However most
AC-electroosmosis pumps studied previously were fabricated using metals such as gold and titanium, which restrict the
geometry of electrodes to planar shapes. Previously we have shown that conductive polymers can be used to fabricate 3D
planar and high aspect ratio electrodes to drive fluid inside microchannels. This paper presents experimental testing of
two designs of AC electroosmotic micropumps for different applied voltages and fluid conductivities.

Abstract

Handling and manipulating fluid using AC-electroosmosis pumping has recently shown some success. However most
AC-electroosmosis pumps studied previously were fabricated using metals such as gold and titanium, which restrict the
geometry of electrodes to planar shapes. Previously we have shown that conductive polymers can be used to fabricate 3D
planar and high aspect ratio electrodes to drive fluid inside microchannels. This paper presents experimental testing of
two designs of AC electroosmotic micropumps for different applied voltages and fluid conductivities.
