Electrostatic Droplet Ejector with Monolithic Fabrication of Nozzle

Keywords: ,

This paper presents a novel mechanism of electrostatic micro droplet formation and ejection of fluid. Unlike conventional electrostatic jetting which requires a high operating voltage, we offer a, commercially viable, low operating voltage for droplet-on-demand operation based on a monolithically layered electrode structure of nozzle. The layered electrode structure of nozzle allows the formation, acceleration, and ejection of a droplet to be controlled by the voltage signals applied to individual electrodes
