Scanning laser pulses driven microfluidic peristaltic membrane pump

Abstract

We reported a pulsed laser driven peristaltic pump for driving fluid in multilayer polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) microchannels. By synchronizing the dynamics of deforming membrane valves with pulsed laser generated bubbles, a maximum pumping rate of 460 pl sāˆ’1 has been achieved.
