This project involves combining Microfluidics and Electrohydrodynamics to prepare monodisperse microbubbles for diagnostic applications. Solely using microfluidic devices to manipulate microbubble size experiences limitations especially with very viscous solutions, hence capitalising on the well understood concept of bubble resonance, various types of electric fields are investigated to facilitate bubble break-up. A computational model will be created to simulate the entire experimental set-up and enable better understanding of fluid mechanics of the flow and the electrohydrodynamic interactions.
