Diffuser micropumps are commonly fabricated using the standard lithography techniques with silicon as the base material. The important components of this type of micropumps are flow-directing diffusers and a moving diaphragm. Different diffuser designs show various flow rates and pump efficiency. In this work a polymer is used as the base material instead… CONTINUE READING
