Poster Information
Electrowetting principles applied to very small amounts of liquids on solid surfaces whereby the scale can be reached up to nanoscale. Electrowetting principally controls the wettability of liquids on solid surfaces using electrical potential. The fabrications of solid surfaces and applied electric potential have a big role in determining the effectiveness of the electrowetting. In order to manipulate the microfluidic droplet, the microscale tools are needed such as microelectrodes, microvalves, microspinner and microspray. These tools used to supply the charge of electric potential to the droplet whereby it can control the hydrophobic and hydrophilic of droplet. In many studies of electrowetting, the type, shape and size of microelectrodes designed must be examined before the start of experiments.
Summary: The technology is growing rapidly whereby the researchers all over the world have discovered the smaller scale of technology. In micro-nanotechnology, the microfluidic manipulation become useful in many field of applications and one of the most advanced method is electrowetting. The observation and review on the design of microelectrode for droplet motion based on electrowetting with different shapes, sizes and fabrication regarding on the different application are hereby reported.References: Report abuse »
