报告题目:Dripping, jetting, drops and wetting:  the magic of microfluidics  奇妙的微流控技术 

时间:1月12号(星期五)上午10:00

地点:唐楼B501     


摘要:   

This talk will discuss the use of microfluidic devices to precisely control the flow and mixing of fluids to make drops, and will explore a variety of uses of these drops. These drops can be used to create new materials that are difficult to synthesize with any other method.  These materials have great potential for use for encapsulation and release.  I will also show how the exquisite control afforded by microfluidic devices provides enabling technology to use droplets as microreactors to perform reactions at remarkably high rates using very small quantities of fluids.
