Diffusion-induced Interfacial Phenomena in Microfluidics

Anderson Shum, Associate Professor, University of Hong Kong

Interfacial phenomena are ubiquitous in both natural systems and technologies. In this talk, I will discuss interfaces formed between two immiscible aqueous liquids. Since molecules can diffuse through these interfaces relatively easily, massive diffusion can happen across them. Together with the control provided by microfluidic devices, interfacial phenomena induced by diffusion can be systematically investigated. I will demonstrate how control of osmotic diffusion enables manipulation of emulsion droplet morphology as well as polyelectrolyte particles and capsules. These diffusion-controlled formation processes should also be applicable in more macroscopic, non-microfluidic settings, and hence have great potential to fabricate new encapsulating structures.
