Figure 1. (a) Schematic of the microfluidic microwave heating system. (b) Microfluidic drop maker. Water drops in fluorocarbon oil are being produced. (c) Parallel drop splitters reduce drops to 63% of their original diameter. (d) Section of microfluidic channel between heating electrodes. The white circles are drops flowing in oil between the two dark metallic electrodes. (e) Image of the actual device as set up on the fluorescence microscope.
