Modeling Fundamental Phenomena in MEMS


Field-induced Dielectrophoresis and Phase Separation for Manipulating Particles in Microfluidics

, , , , , , , , , ,
We report observations of new many-body phenomena in the micro-scale behavior of a suspension subject to a high-gradient strong alternating current (ac) field and shear. Their origin is dielectrophoresis accompanied by the field-induced phase separation [...]
