Laser-Driven Micro-fluidic Pump for Liquid Mixing on Bio Chips
An apparatus for controlling a cylinder by a microfluidic stream includes a microtube, a first laser-driven photoacoustic microfluid pump (LDMP), and a fiber optic element. The microtube includes a fluid and a cylinder. The fiber optic element includes a first end and a second end. The first end is disposed on the first LDMP and the second end is disposed in a first end portion of the microtube. The first LDMP is configured to generate a directional fluidic jet from the fluid and to push the cylinder in a direction away from the second end of the fiber optic element.
