Microfluidics: What can it do for you?


Microfluidics refers to fluids confined to volumes that have at least one dimension of 0.1 mm or smaller. The behavior of such tiny volumes of liquid is different from what we typically experience every day, such as when we wash our hands. The unique physics of microfluidics enables many useful technologies, with applications in fields ranging from healthcare and medicine to consumer electronics. 


Aaron Ohta is a Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. His research encompasses the fields of microfluidics and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) for a variety of applications.
