Shrinking microbubbles with microfluidics: mathematical modelling to control microbubble sizes

Abstract:

Microbubbles have applications in industry and life-sciences. In medicine, small encapsulated bubbles (< 10 μm) are desirable because of their utility in drug/oxygen delivery, sonoporation, and ultrasound diagnostics. While there are various techniques for generating microbubbles, microfluidic methods are distinguished due to their precise control and ease-offabrication. Nevertheless, sub-10 μm diameter bubble generation using microfluidics remains challenging, and typically requires expen...
