Abstract

Presents an experimental investigation of the stability phenomena of an air-liquid two-phase microfluidic system in air-sheath-driven flow cytometry. High-speed thin liquid jets interacting with air-sheath flows and polymeric microfluidic channel walls show different flow behaviors in response to channel geometry, surface chemistry, and flow rates of liquid and air. We studied the variation of flow structure and stability of liquid jets in hydrophobic channels having different thickness to identify the effect of device geometry on microscale air-liquid two-phase flows.
