Title: MICROFLUIDIC MANIPULATION AND SORTING OF PARTICLES USING TUNABLE STANDING SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVE
Abstract:
An apparatus for manipulating particles uses tunable standing surface acoustic waves includes a channel defined on a substrate and a pair of variable frequency interdigital transducers. The channel is disposed asymmetrically between the transducers such that the zero order node location is outside of a working region in the channel.
