Recent advances in microfluidic technologies have created a demand for techniques to control the motion of flowing microparticles. Here we consider how the shape and geometric confinement of a rigid microparticle can be tailored for 'self-steering' under external flow. We find that an asymmetric particle, weakly confined in one direction and strongly(More)
We report a microfluidic approach for lithographically photo-patterning compartmentalized microparticles with any 2D-extruded shape, down to the cellular length scale (~10 microns). The prepolymer solution consists of a UV crosslinkable perfluorodecalin-in-water nanoemulsion stabilized by Pluronic(®) F-68. The nanoemulsions are generated using high-pressure(More)
