Electrowetting is the phenomenon of contact angle decrease under the influence of an external voltage applied across the solid/liquid interface. Electrowetting offers an interesting possibility to enhance the wettability of hydrophobic materials without altering the chemical composition of the system and thus could be incorporated in various microfluidic devices. Electrowetting is fundamentally an electrocapillary effect occurring on an insulated solid electrode (hence the change of the solid… CONTINUE READING
