摘要

We demonstrate a microelongational streaming generated by nonlinear electro-osmosis with high-frequency ac polarization. The phenomenon is attributed to the unique rectification mechanism that coordinates three-dimensional flow interactions between adjacent microvortices in an asymmetric quadrupole electric field. This streaming exhibits a stagnation-point structure with velocity of 300 μm/s at 100 Hz due to Faradaic polarization, but is reversed with slower velocity at 1 kHz by Ohmic charging. The measured extensional rate shows a quadratic dependence on the field in line with nonlinear Smoluchowski scale. The flow can be ready to control fluid transport and manipulate particles in microdevices.
