Starting from the basic principles of wetting, electrowetting and fluid dynamics all the way up to those engineering aspects relevant for the development of specific devices, this is a comprehensive introduction and overview of the theoretical and practical aspects. Written by two of the most knowledgeable experts in the field, the text covers both current as well as possible future applications, providing basic working principles of lab-on-a-chip devices and such optofluidic devices as adaptive lenses and optical switches. Furthermore, novel e-paper display technology, energy harvesting and supercapacitors as well as electrowetting in the nano-world are discussed. Finally, the book contains a series of exercises and questions for use in courses on microfluidics or electrowetting. With its all-encompassing scope, this book will equally serve the growing community of students and academic and industrial researchers as both an introduction and a standard reference.

This is the third Volume in the series “Advances in Contact Angle, Wettability and Adhesion” initiated to consolidate information and provide commentary on certain recent research aspects dealing with this important topic. Its predecessor Volumes 1 and 2 were published in 2013 and 2015, respectively. This new book comprising 15 research and review articles is divided into four parts: Part 1: Contact Angle Measurement and Analysis; Part 2: Wettability Behavior; Part 3: Hydrophobic/Superhydrophobic Surfaces; Part 4: Wettability, Surface Free Energy and Adhesion. The topics covered include: O Procedure to measure and analyse contact angles/drop shape behaviors. O Contact angle measurement considering spreading, evaporation and reactive substrate. O Measurement of contact angle of a liquid on a substrate of the same liquid. O Evolution of the axisymmetric droplet shape parameters. O Interfacial modulus of a solid surface. O Functionalization of textiles using UV-based techniques for surface modification—patterned wetting behavior. O Wettability behavior of oleophilic and oleophobic nanorough surfaces. O Wettability behavior of nanofluids. O Dielectrowetting for digital microfluidics. O Hydrophobicity and superhydrophobicity in fouling prevention. O Superhydrophobic/superhydrophilic hybrid surface. O Laser material processing for enhancing stem cell growth. O Wettability correlation for bioadhesion to different materials. O Determination of the surface free energy of solid surfaces: statistical consideration. O Determination of apparent surface free energy using hysteresis approach.

Presents readers with the basic science, technology, and applications for every type of adaptive lens An adaptive lens is a lens whose shape has been changed to a different focal length by an external stimulus such as pressure, electric field, magnetic field, or temperature. Introduction to Adaptive Lenses is the first book ever to address all of the fundamental operation principles, device characteristics, and potential applications of various types of adaptive lenses. This comprehensive book covers basic material properties, device structures and performance, image processing and zooming, optical communications, and biomedical imaging. Readers will find homework problems and solutions included at the end of each chapter—and based on the described device structures, they will have the knowledge to fabricate adaptive lenses for practical applications or develop new adaptive devices or concepts for advanced investigation. Introduction to Adaptive Lenses includes chapters on: Optical lenses Elastomeric membrane lenses Electro-wetting lenses Dielectrophoretic lenses Mechanical-wetting lenses Liquid crystal lenses This is an important reference for optical engineers, research scientists, graduate students, and undergraduate seniors.

Nanotechnology and microengineering are among the top priority research areas in the United States and will continue to be so during the next decade, making Fundamentals of Microfabrication an important and timely work. Written by an internationally recognized expert on sensors and sensor instrumentation who is also a leading authority on nanotechnology and microfabrication, this book will function as both a valuable textbook and a handy reference. Ten chapters discuss in detail topics such as lithography, pattern transfer, wet and dry bulk micromachining, surface micromachining, and LIGA. Alternative micromachining technologies are described and electronics used with micromachined devices are examined. Bonding and packaging issues are defined. The book also presents quantum structures and reviews molecular engineering. Numerous appendices offer valuable information in an easily accessible format.

Poised to dramatically impact human health, biomedical microsystems (bioMEMS) technologies incorporate various aspects from materials science, biology, chemistry, physics, medicine, and engineering. Reflecting the highly interdisciplinary nature of this area, Biomedical Microsystems covers the fundamentals of miniaturization, biomaterials, microfabrication, and nanotechnology, along with relevant applications. Written by an active researcher who was recently named one of Technology Review’s Young Innovators Under 35, the book begins with an introduction to the benefits of miniaturization. It then introduces materials, fabrication technology, and the necessary components of all bioMEMS. The author also covers fundamental principles and building blocks, including microfluidic concepts, lab-on-a-chip systems, and sensing and detection methods. The final chapters explore several important applications of bioMEMS, such as microdialysis, catheter-based sensors, MEMS implants, neural probes, and tissue engineering. For readers with a limited background in MEMS and bioMEMS, this book provides a practical introduction to the technology used to make these devices, the principles that govern their operation, and examples of their application. It offers a starting point for understanding advanced topics and encourages readers to begin to formulate their own ideas about the design of novel bioMEMS. A solutions manual is available for instructors who want to convert this reference to classroom use.
