Title: ARRAYABLE ACOUSTIC ACTUATORS FOR MICROFLUIDICS
Abstract:
An apparatus, comprising: a non-piezoelectric substrate; at least one interdigital transducer on the non-piezoelectric substrate to generate an electric field in response to an applied voltage; and at least one piezoelectric substrate to directly or indirectly support a fluid to be acoustically actuated; wherein the piezoelectric substrate is positioned adjacently above or below the non-piezoelectric substrate so that in use the electric field is converted to acoustic energy that acoustically actuates the fluid.
