We present two micro-devices, fabricated by using MEMS technology, in which mixing of fluid and particles takes place. The systems are designed to induce folding and stretching of material lines, leading to chaotic-like mixing. In a first case, we use unsteady pressure perturbations superimposed to a mean stream, and in the second case, time-dependent… CONTINUE READING
