Imagine the following:
- 50 different tests from your blood are carried out with the consumption of 2 droplets and a laboratory on a little piece of plastic
- Heat pumps at the size of a camera
- Batteries as an energy source are replaced by thermodynamic circle-processes, 1/5 of physical size.
This is possible when gas and/or fluid is flowing from one place to another, and participate in different processes along the way. This micro-flow is taking place in micro channels – typical diameter is 1/100 millimeter. Unexpected, exciting flow-regimes as well as several new set of problems occur.
More information on the theme is to be found on our internet site about microflow .
