Soft Matter Electrokinetics

Electric fields can be used to concentrate, pattern, and sort various sized colloidal particles, droplets, and bubbles. Electrokinetic phenomena such as electrophoresis, electroosmosis, dielectrophoresis, electrothermal flows, induced charge electrokinetics, and electrohydrodynamic, are at play during these processes leading to direct or indirect manipulation of these colloidal scale objects. Fundamental and applied papers pertaining to the assembly, transport, or deformation of particles, droplets and/or bubbles using electrokinetics or related physical phenomena are welcome. Papers that include microfluidics, interfacial deformation or separations, and assembly for advanced materials are encouraged.



Paper abstracts are public but to access Extended Abstracts, you must first purchase the conference proceedings.
