Title: Electrowetting-driven drop manipulation for lab-on-a-chip

Description: In electrowetting, the wettability of surfaces can be reduced locally by activating certain electrodes (of size 1x1mm^2 in this video). This can be used to move drops back and forth, to split or merge them, or have them execute other motions. Electrowetting is a powerful technique for lab-on-a-chip applications. Pioneering groups for these applications are Richard Fair's group at Duke University and C.J. Kim's group at UCLA. More fancy drop manipulation movies can be found on their websites and at
