    • Capillary origami as a new method for printing nanoparticles on 3D surfaces 

      Özkazanç G.; Erdem E.Y. (Chemical and Biological Microsystems Society, 2016)
      We introduce capillary origami as a new method to print nanoparticles on curved, three dimensional polymer surfaces. When a liquid droplet containing nanoparticles is placed on a thin PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane) membrane, ...
    • Fabrication and characterization of liquid metal-based micro-electromechanical DC-contact switch for RF applications 

      Cagatay, E.; Noyan, M.A.; Damgaci, Y.; Cetiner, B.A.; Biyikli, N. (2012)
      We demonstrate that room-temperature liquid metal alloy droplets of Eutectic Gallium Indium (EGaIn) and Gallium Indium Tin alloy (Galinstan) can be actuated using electro-wetting-on-dielectric (EWOD) effect. With the ...
    • Modeling of electro-kinetic motion of Janus droplet 

      Öner, S. D.; Cetin, B. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2017)
      Electro-kinetic manipulation Janus particles and droplets has attracted attention in recent years due to their potential application in microfluidics. Due to the presence of two different zone on the surface of particles ...
    • Modeling of evaporation from a sessile constant shape droplet 

      Akkuş, Y.; Cetin, B.; Dursunkaya, Z. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2017)
      In this study, a computational model for the evaporation from a sessile liquid droplet fed from the center to keep the diameter of the droplet constant is presented. The continuity, momentum and energy equations are solved ...
    • Numerical analysis of mixing performance in sinusoidal microchannels based on particle motion in droplets 

      Özkan, A.; Erdem, E. Y. (Springer Verlag, 2015)
      This numerical study was conducted to analyze and understand the parameters that affect the mixing performance of droplet-based flow in sinusoidal microfluidic channels. Finite element analysis was used for modeling fluid ...
    • Silica nanoparticle formation by using droplet-based microreactor 

      Nikdoost, A.; Ozkan, A.; Kelestemur, Y.; Demir, H. V.; Erdem, E. Y. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2017)
      This paper describes a method for the synthesis of silica nanoparticles that can be later used for coating of quantum dots inside a microfluidic reactor. Here, a droplet-based system is used where two reagents were mixed ...
    • Simulation of water drops on a surface 

      Algan, E.; Kabak, M.; Ozguc, B.; Capin, T. (2008)
      We have designed and implemented a model for rendering and animating water drops moving on a surface under physical effects such as gravity, surface affinity and wind. For improved rendering, the output of the simulation ...
