Pore Power: High-Speed Droplet Production in Microfluidic Devices


Over the last two decades, ongoing research in microfluidics has faced challenges in applications due to the restricted productivity of microdroplets. In a recent study, researchers from Chiba University have tackled this issue by developing an efficient method to boost the speed of microdroplet generation for microfluidic devices. This was achieved by incorporating porous, inverse colloidal crystal structures into conventional microchannels, offering potential applications in medicine, food, cosmetics, and semiconductor manufacturing.
