Role of streaming potential on pulsating mass flow rate control in combined electroosmotic and pressure-driven microfluidic devices.

Abstract

In the present study, we investigate the implications of streaming potential on the mass flow rate control in a microfluidic device actuated by the combined application of a pulsating pressure gradient and a pulsating, externally applied, electric field. We demonstrate that the temporal dynamics due to streaming potential effects may lead to interesting non… (More)
