Title (EN) OPEN OPTOELECTROWETTING DROPLET ACTUATION DEVICE AND METHOD
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ D'ACTIVATION DE GOUTTELETTES PAR OPTO-‌ÉLECTRO-‌MOUILLABILITÉ OUVERTE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An open optoelectrowetting (o-OEW) device for liquid droplet manipulations. The o-OEW device is realized by coplanar electrodes and a photoconductor. The local switching effect for electrowetting resulting from illumination is based on the tunable impedance of the photoconductor. Dynamic virtual electrodes are created using projected images, leading to free planar movements of droplets.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif d'opto-‌électro-‌mouillabilité ouverte (open optoelectrowetting, o-OEW) destiné à des manipulations sur des gouttelettes de liquide. Le dispositif o-OEW est concrétisé par des électrodes coplanaires et un photoconducteur. L'effet de commutation locale aux fins d'‌électro-‌mouillabilité résultant de l'éclairage est basé sur l'impédance accordable du photoconducteur. Des électrodes virtuelles dynamiques sont créées à l'aide d'images projetées, engendrant des mouvements planaires libres de gouttelettes.
