This work addresses the thermophysical phenomena of bubble formation by using solid-state microheaters and recommends specific directions for future applications. Microscale bubble formation has become an important actuation mechanism for microfluidic machines in the emerging field of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Characterization of microbubble formation mechanisms leads to new scientific research in microscale heat transfer and provides design guidelines for bubble-powered… CONTINUE READING
