Most microfluidic chips consist of several microchannels inside. In order to design microfluidic chips efficiently, it is important to predict the flow passage and to understand the flow characteristics on the chip. In this study, the flow structure inside microchannels has been investigated using a micro-PIV system. We focused on the flow resistance with respect to the inlet configuration of microchannels. The microchannels made of poly-dimethyl-siloxane (PDMS) material were fabricated by a… Expand
