Abstract

We proposed an efficient and high throughput formation process for single-micron order droplets using breakup of droplet tail. Droplet tail was induced by multi-branch channel, and several daughter droplets about 1-2 μm in diameter were continuously generated by splitting of the tail at the branch channel. An effect of chemical assistances on the tail and daughter droplet formation was evaluated, as well as influence of fluidic conditions.
