Progress in low voltage reversible electrowetting with lubricated polymer honeycomb substrates

Author affiliations

Abstract

Low-voltage electrowetting on liquid infused films realized with lubricated honeycomb polymer surfaces is reported. Introduction of ethylene carbonate into the polymer (polycarbonate) matrix allowed an increase in the sensitivity of the scheme. A theoretical analysis of the thermodynamics of the electrowetting on a liquid infused film is reported. Fitting of experimental data to theoretical curves allowed an estimation of the specific capacity of the double layer. An analysis of the viscous dissipation taking place under the proposed electrowetting scheme is presented.
