This thesis deals with the formation of emulsions using micro-engineered devices. It covers devices made from silicon nitride, metals and polymers using different types of micro-processing tools for their fabrication. In order to produce water-in-oil emulsions, surface modifications were applied to render the surface of the metal and silicon nitride devices hydrophobic.
