Abstract

This research presents a sequential formation method of microdroplets whose volumes are uniform or arithmetically distributed. Side flow into bypass channel allows fine breakup of daughter droplets and volumes of the droplets are controlled via dimension of the bypass channels. Rejoining of the bypass channel with main channel provides uniform initial condition before all situation of droplet breakup. Therefore, the two types of channel design achieves precise formation of multiple daughter droplets continuously.
