Order and Chaos*: Collective Behavior of Crowded Drops in Microfluidic Systems: *Crowded droplet breakup HydrodynAmics not Ordered but Stochastic
Seminar | May 9 | 12-1 p.m. | Soda Hall, Wozniak Lounge
Prof. Sindy KY Tang, Assistant Professor, Stanford University, Department of Mechanical Engineering
Droplet microfluidics, in which micro-droplets serve as individual reactors, has enabled a range of high-throughput biochemical processes. This talk examines the collective behavior of drops in a concentrated emulsion by tracking the dynamics and the fate of individual drops. Our results represent a new type of collective order and have practical use in on-chip droplet manipulation.
