We experimentally study the production of micrometer-sized droplets using microfluidic technology and a flow-focusing geometry. Two distinct methods of flow control are compared: (i) control of the flow rates of the two phases and (ii) control of the inlet pressures of the two phases. In each type of experiment, the drop size l, velocity U and production(More)
We prepared giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs) enclosing solutions or covalent gels of Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PolyNipam). Concentrated suspensions of GUVs were prepared by applying an alternative field on a lipid film hydrated by a monomer solution containing N-isopropylacrylamide, crosslinker (N,N'-methylene-bis-acrylamide), initiator and sucrose.(More)
