Prepared by Lili Mats, Ph.D. Candidate; under the supervision of Dr. Richard Oleschuk, Department of Chemistry, Queen’s University; in co-operation with CMC microsystems.
This application note provides a functional overview of a MIP Microfluidics system in the study of electrowetting on a dielectric (EWOD) which is distributed through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) emSYSCAN project. A MIP system is used to test electrowetting properties of the new superhydrophobic coating by supplying DC voltage generated by the NI PXI-4130 SMU module and amplified by the Tegam High Voltage Amplifier Model 2350. A Veho USB camera microscope with 400 times magnification is used to take contact angle pictures which are then processed with ImageJ software.
