Abstract

Among previous passive micromixers represented by pre-patterned microchannels, it is difficult to actively control the mixing condition. Therefore, as an active micromixer, we propose an on-demand on-chip micromixer using local high-speed flow which generates vortices in a microchannel. The micromixer utilizes vortices for mixing by using high-speed flow control. In this paper, we succeeded in on-demand mixing by applying various input signals to the micromixer.
