Microfluidics is the science and technology of manipulating and analyzing fluid flow in sub-millimeter dimensions. It is the key enabling technology for many emerging applications and disciplines, especially in the fields of medicine, environmental sensing, biology, and chemistry. Also in engineering and the physical sciences, microfluidic systems are employed in applications such as control systems, heat management, and energy generation. This workshop intended for research students (UG & PG), Industrial and Academic professionals, working in the field of Chemical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Material science, Bio-Engineering and Biotechnology. This workshop aims to provide the participants with the fundamental knowledge in microfluidics and its applications in the product developments. Also, participants will gain hands-on experience with microfluidic device fabrication, surface characterization and multiphase flow experiments and simulations.

Topics and Workshop Organisation:

  • Introduction to microfluidics and its applications•
  • Microfluidic device fabrication techniques•
  • Microfluidics surface treatment techniques•
  • Hydrodynamics of multiphase flows in micro-channels (experiments and simulations)•
  • Applications of microfluidics in Bio-medical and Biotechnology•
  • Challenges in microfluidics research for Industrial commercialization•
  • Hands-on experience with fabrication and surface characterization techniques•
  • Hands-on experience with microfluidics experiments and CFD simulations
Following are the key learning objectives:
  • Understand the fundamentals of microfluidics technology and its applications
  • Understand the different micro-fabrication techniques and hands-on experience with Laser & CNC milling.
  • Gain knowledge on different channel surface treatment techniques and hands-on experience with Profilometer, Advance Goniometer and Stereo-microscope.
  • Understand the experimental characterization and Numerical investigations of multiphase flows in micro-channels.
  • Gain hands-on experience with multiphase flows experiments using instruments such as Pressure based flow controllers, Gas Mass Flow controllers, LED Illuminator and CCD camera, etc.,
  • Understand the role of microfluidics technology in biomedical applications.
  • Gain hands-on experience with multiphase flows simulations using CFD tools such as Open FOAM and COMSOL.
  • Provide insights on recent development and challenges of microfluidics research for industrial applications and commercialization.
