Self-Assembling Nanoliter Containers

Nanotechnology, the new science of extreme miniaturization, is a rapidly growing field in engineering. On this size scale, it is extremely difficult and expensive to fabricate analogs of macroscale engineering, such as grippers. Drawing inspiration from biological fabrication in nature, engineers are seeking to self-assemble structures from the bottom up. This manufacturing paradigm has been […]

Surface Tension-Confined Microfluidics

Video from figure 4 of reference (1) implemented with an aqueous solution. The surface tension-confined microfluidic paradigm is an approach to microfluidic manufacturing seeking to bring the burgeoning micro total analysis technology to market for deployable sensor applications. The device in the video is implemented with under 20 microliters of fluid. Fabricating such a device […]
