Mixing Studies in Microfluidic Devices


Project Description

In this project, students worked with graduate student Chrysafis Andreou in the Meinhart group to construct and test microfluidic mixing devices.  These devices enable scientists to control fluid interactions on a very precise scale with a very small amount of a fluid sample.  Students used these devices to study diffusion of a small fluorescent molecule and investigate different modes of fluid control.
