Abstract:

Electrically controlled droplet motion is a strategy of using electric field to manipulate droplet motion, which has attracted much attentions due to its advantages of fast response, high speed and controllable path for the droplet. It is of great significance in the basic research of field-stimulus droplet motion and the practical application of intelligent microfluidic devices. This paper summarizes the basic principle and research progress of classic droplet motion driven by electrowetting, introduces the representative achievements of new-type electrically controlled droplet motion, and prospects the development of related research and applications.

Key words: Droplet motion, Wettability, Electrowetting, Electrostatic manipulation
