An excellent text, very well written and pedagogically sound. Clear, concise, and complete, it explains the theoretical framework of microfluidics to a broad audience. ( Kari Dalnoki-Veress, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario)
Written in a highly pedagogical style. The reader, whether graduate, undergraduate or researcher will find this book extremely useful. ( Patrick Tabeling, ESPCI Paris)
The field is rapidly evolving to the point where it will become valuable, and indeed necessary, to do calculations to design real devices. This book offers a prescription for doing this. ( David Weitz, Harvard University)
Microfluidics is a young and rapidly expanding scientific discipline, which deals with fluids and solutions in miniaturized systems, the so-called lab-on-a-chip systems. It has applications in chemical engineering, pharmaceutics, biotechnology and medicine. As the lab-on-a-chip systems grow in complexity, a proper theoretical understanding becomes increasingly important.
The basic idea of the book is to provide a self-contained formulation of the theoretical framework of microfluidics, and at the same time give physical motivation and examples from lab-on-a-chip technology. After three chapters introducing microfluidics, the governing equations for mass, momentum and energy, and some basic flow solutions, the following 14 chapters treat hydraulic resistance/compliance, diffusion/dispersion, time-dependent flow, capillarity, electro- and magneto-hydrodynamics, thermal transport, two-phase flow, complex flow patterns and acousto-fluidics, as well as the new fields of opto- and nano-fluidics. Throughout the book simple models with analytical solutions are presented to provide the student with a thorough physical understanding of order of magnitudes and various selected microfluidic phenomena and devices.
The book grew out of a set of well-tested lecture notes. It is with its many pedagogical exercises designed as a textbook for an advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate course. It is also well suited for self-study.
