Fluid flow generated by ac signals in a point-plane microsytem is studied. KCl aqueous solutions are used and fluid flow is observed for frequencies ranging from 100 Hz up to 1 MHz or 20 MHz depending on the electrolyte conductivity. Possible mechanisms for the explanation of the observed fluid flow are exposed.
