Triboelectric effect as a new strategy for sealing and controlling the flow in paper-based devices

Author affiliations

We reported here for the first time that triboelectric charges on PET sheets can be used to seal and control the flow rate in paper-based devices. The proposed method exhibits simplicity and low cost, provides reversible sealing and minimizes the effect of sample evaporation.
