This image will be presented in a poster at the Gallery of Fluid Motion (APS DFD, San Fransisco). A sophisticated compound droplet can be created on a fiber array. The picture shows a droplet with four different internal components.
In earlier works [1,2], we proved that fiber arrays are the basis of an open digital microfluidics. Droplets can be manipulated on fibers and various processes such as droplet motion, fragmentation, trapping, release, mixing and encapsulation were studied on fiber … Continue reading
