Designing and constructing a lab-on-a-chip device poses a variety of questions. Transport of all required substances, detection of the analyte and its deposition on a sensor have to be incorporated. Different strategies have been developed to achieve good coverages of the sensor, like employing electric or magnetic gradients. On the basis of a ramp like structure, the binding of the analyte to a ...

This paper presents a simulation of the operation of a new type of droplet generation probe. This probe, consisting of two concentrically-arranged tubings, is immersed in a beaker of cell medium so that oil is pumped through the outer tubing at a pumping speed less than fluid is drawn into the inner tubing. In this way, droplets of cell medium are entrained into the outlet tubing forming a ...

Electrofluidic transport through a single walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) is enhanced by electroosmosis. Electroosmosis is made possible in these devices by the combination of a large slip length within SWCNTs and the interfacial potential at the solution/nanotube interface. A computational model of a SWCNT device was developed using COMSOL Multiphysics to investigate the complete electrical ...

A small particle or a nano-sized object placed in a liquid is subject to random collisions with solvent molecules. The resulting erratic movement of the object is known as Brownian motion, which, in nature, cannot be used to any practical advantage both in natural systems (such as biomolecular motors) or by artificial devices. If energy is supplied by external source or by chemical reactions, ...

Strained wrinkled and flat nanomembranes have different bending properties when they are released from the underlying substrate. This is caused by increased bending rigidity of the wrinkled film in one direction. We provide theoretical and numerical analysis of the directional rolling of wrinkled films, which is important for positioning rolled-up tubes on the short mesa edge during fabrication.

A successful development of an effective quench detection and protection method for a high temperature superconducting (HTS) coil based on a HTS coated conductor tape lays on a thorough understanding of its slowly propagating, three-dimension (3D) quench behavior. Toward this goal, a 3D micrometer scale finite element (FE) thermo-magnetostatic HTS tape model is developed and implemented in ...

This paper showed: * The electronic states of core-shell tetrapod with various shell thickness were calculated. Lowest 20 electron and hole wave functions have A1 or T2 symmetry. * At t=1.2 nm, the carriers separation is not serious, core-shell tetrapod is not apparent type II heterostructure. * Exciton states were investigated as a function of t. For large t, the lowest exciton state has T2 ...
Numerical and Experimental Evaluation for Measurement of a Single Red Blood Cell Deformability Using a Microchannel and Electric Sensors
Kyoto University, Kyoto City, Kyoto, Japan
An electric micro-resistance sensor that can continuously measure the deformability of a single red blood cell (RBC) in a microchannel and a numerical model that can simulate the resistance and capacitance of the cell membrane and cytoplasm are developed and improved. The resistance signal pattern between the electrodes is measured to evaluate the feasibility of the present sensor, using the ...

Today, MEMS based accelerometers are used in a variety of applications. To name a few, they are used in safety systems in automobiles, it has added a new dimension to miniaturization of devices, it has replaced traditional piezoelectric accelerometers, which were big and difficult to use. For its various applications, differing bandwidth (operating frequency range) and amplitude of vibration are ...
