Updating the Artech House bestseller, "Fundamentals and Applications of Microfluidics", this newly revised second edition provides electrical and mechanical engineers with complete and current coverage of microfluidics - an emerging field involving fluid flow and devices in microscale and nanoscale. The second edition offers a greatly expanded treatment of nanotechnology, electrokinetics and flow theory. The book shows engineers how to take advantage of the performance benefits of microfluidics and serves as an instant reference for state-of-the-art microfluidics technology and applications. The wide range of applications discussed includes fluid control devices, gas and fluid measurement devices, medical testing equipment, and implantable drug pumps. Professionals learn how to choose the best fabrication and enabling technology for a specific microfluidic application.
