Abstract

IR laser induced sol-gel transfer of hydrogel is applied for the microfluidic controls. High performance biomolecules sorting systems using T-shaped microchannel including Ti absorbers to enhance the heat generation were realized. Mebiol Gel™ whose critical temperature 32 C was used as the carrier and high speed sorting of about 30 msec was achieved by optimizing the channel structure. We also apply sol-gel transfer to realize 2-D specific flow control in the microcavity by projecting near-IR light using a Digital Mirror Device (DMD).
