Electrokinetics and Microfluidics

75th A.C.S. Colloid and Surface Science Symposium
Carnegie Mellon University
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
June 10-13, 2001

Symposium Organizers:
Andrea Chow
Caliper Technologies
Darrell Velegol
Pennsylvania State University
Lee White
Carnegie Mellon University

Interfacial phenomena can be used to drive relative motion between phases. The goal of this symposium is to present both applied and fundamental research that is important to colloidal processing, biotechnology, displays, XYZ on a chip, and other technologies. The research can be experimental, theoretical, or numerical; cross-disciplinary efforts are encouraged.


Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
Processing in microfluidic networks
Controlling flow in microchannels (e.g., electroosmosis, hydrophobic fluid dynamics)
High frequency electric fields for characterizing surfaces (e.g., ESA, dielectric spectroscopy)
Measurements made using electrokinetics (e.g., colloidal forces)
Display technology and electrokinetics (e.g., electronic inks)
Electrophoretic separations
Electrophoretic deposition and ordering
Nonidealities in electrokinetics (e.g., Stern layers, surface roughness)

This symposium will feature a keynote lecture by
Dr. Dick O'Brien,Colloidal Dynamics
Title TBA
