Title: Chaotic mixer

Description: Efficiency of a MEMS-based time-periodic micro chaotic mixers. A time-periodic flow perturbation is realized using digitally controlled solenoid valves to activate a source and sink alternately, acting together as a pair, with different driving frequencies. The observation is made in a microfluidic system.
