A new method for levitation of a charged microdroplet is presented. The feedback-control consists of high-speed camera, flatness based follow-up controller and high-voltage amplifier.
The miniaturization of chemical synthesis procedures and their integration in complex microfluidic systems is highly interesting both commercially and scientifically. Here, dosing of microdrops for activation or passivation with high accuracy on a substrate or [...]
The physics of nucleation, boiling, bubble growth and collapse in thermal microactuators will be presented. The boiling process exhibits an equivalence to a phase transition of second order and this leads, in contrast to classical [...]
Model based evaluation of high speed cinematographic image sequences is demonstrated for a microrelay which was manufactured using the LIGA technology. The measurements of the microrelay have been performed with an experimental setup based on [...]
