Acoustofluidics 23: acoustic manipulation combined with other force fields

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this, the final paper of the Acoustofluidics series of tutorial articles, we discuss applications in which acoustic radiation forces are used in conjunction with competing or complementary force-fields. This may be in order to enable manipulation operations that would not be easily performed by either force-field alone, or may be used to effect separation based on the different physical principals underlying competing fields. Examples are given of a number of different applications in which acoustic forces are combined with gravitational fields, hydrodynamic forces, electric fields (including dielectrophoresis), magnetic forces and optical forces.
