  • This paper describes two types of polymeric micropumps based on the temperature-sensitive hydrogel poly(N-isopropylacrylamide). The gel actuators are realised as photopolymerised patterns and microgels. They are electrothermically controlled by resistive heating elements. The diffusion-based micropump contains a photopatterned monolithic actuator, which is placed within the pump chamber, and provides a valveless single layer set-up. The diffusion micropump is intended for low performance… CONTINUE READING
