Micro-scale optofludics control based on thermoplasmonic effect of nanoparticle arrays

Project description

Greater control for microscale optofluidics

Optofluidics is an area of research and technology combining the advantages of microfluidics and optics. Applications extend to lenses, displays, lab-on-chip devices and biosensors as well as molecular imaging tools and energy. Thanks to the development of the microfluidic chip, optofluidic control is increasingly attracting attention as a promising tool in applications relevant to pharmaceutics, chemistry, energy and biology. The EU-funded MOFCTP project aims to develop a light-controlled microvalve technique that can be utilised to manipulate fluid flow in microchannels and potentially promote the development of a new generation of light-driven micropumps or micromotors. Researchers will contribute their expertise, providing important training to EU researchers, industrial contacts and undergraduates through a host of special seminars.
