19 April 2013 Microparticle transport and concentration with surface acoustic waves
Author Affiliations +
We describe lithium niobate SAW devices and PDMS microfluidic channels with which we study microparticle movement. We generate standing surface acoustic waves (with wavelengths of 200 micrometers) and show that microparticles (between 5 and 35 micrometers in diameter) move to nodes or antinodes. We report measurements of device response in the presence and absence of the microfluidic channel, which we combine with finite element simulation modeling to extract estimates of the PDMS damping.
