Formation of Droplets and Mixing in Multiphase Microfluidics at Low Values of the Reynolds and the Capillary Numbers

Abstract

This paper reports an experimental characterization of a simple method for rapid formation of droplets, or plugs, of multiple aqueous reagents without bringing reagents into contact prior to mixing. Dropletbased microfluidics offers a simple method of achieving rapid mixing and transport with no dispersion. In addition, this paper shows that organic dyes at… (More)
