We are developing a versatile microfluidics platform to measure material properties. Immiscible fluids, nanoparticle and nanotube suspensions, individual micelles, biological cells, and other complex fluids are being characterized using computer-controlled microfluidic devices with controlled flow type and shear rate. For example, interfacial tension in immiscible fluids and the rate of dispersion of nanotube clusters have been measured.
