The Letter reports an experimental study of microfluidic droplets produced in T junctions and subjected to a local periodic forcing. Synchronized and quasiperiodic regimes--organized into Arnold tongues and devil staircases--are reported for the first time for a system dedicated to drop emission. The nature of the dynamical regime controls the droplet… CONTINUE READING
