CHAPTER 13: Droplet Manipulation on Liquid-Repellent Surfaces

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

The low friction experienced by droplets on a liquid-repellent surface allows for facile and precise manipulation of the droplets, and could open routes for droplet microfluidics, lab-on-a-chip systems, and other applications. This review first discusses the principles of droplet friction. Subsequently we describe different forms of droplet manipulation driven by gravity or magnetic fields, including guided transportation, controlled deposition, splitting, and trapping.
