Generation of monodispersed microdroplets by temperature controlled bubble condensation processes

Author affiliations

Abstract

This work introduces a microfluidic method for the generation of monodispersed microdroplets by using temperature controlled bubble condensation processes. In this method, the dispersed phase is first vaporized in the feeding pipe and ruptured to monodispersed bubbles in a coflowing stream. These bubbles are then condensed in the downstream pipe, where monodispersed microdroplets are obtained. This method ensures the narrow distribution of droplet diameters and prepares microdroplets less than 200 μm in sub-millimeter fluidic devices.
