Electrofluidics

e-Paper Displays and Agile Lab-on-a-Chip


Electrofluidics and electrowetting technology allow scalable and digital control of droplets as small as 10's of μm in diameter, and over LCD size substrates with millions of control electrodes. Recent breakthroughs at UC include electrical switching of brilliantly colored ink-jet fluids for e-Paper displays, and the world's first technique for electrical programming of virtually any microfluidic network. This work involves over a dozen corporate partnerships spanning the United States, Europe, and Asia.
