  • Gas pumping efect from dielectrophoretically driven liquid droplet in a closed microfluidic channel 

    Jiao, Jian (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    This dissertation describes the study of dielectrophotoretically controllable droplet's movement in a closed-side microfluidic channel for a micro gas pump application. A micro gas pump using a aqueous core has been ...
  • Low loss film bulk acoustic resonator in liquid environments 

    Pottigari, Sai Sumanth (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    A film bulk acoustic resonator (FBAR) is an acoustic resonator mass sensor using the resonance of longitudinal or shears acoustic waves. There is a significant Q factor loss in liquid medium due to acoustic energy loss. ...
  • Microfluidic capture of rare cells via non-cylindrical microposts in an array 

    Howard, Daniel James (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2014)
    In recent decades, microsystems for the capture of rare cells have become exceedingly popular and important in the study of cellular mechanisms. These microsystems are quite varied in their approach for capturing cells and ...
