Demonstration of Multiphase Microfluidics for Chemical Analysis Systems

PI: Aaron Noell, Fernanda Mora (Co-I), NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory

The Multiphase Microfluidics for Chemical Analysis Systems demonstration aims to help researchers assess multiphase reservoirs for sample mixing and bubble migration. The experiment apparatus utilizes reservoir shapes and a high voltage electric field to help drive the gas phase to a desired location and prevent bubbles from blocking outlet/inlet channels. A mixing filter in one reservoir and a high-voltage electrode in the other could potentially help researchers understand the occurrence of unexpected phase behavior.
