Abstract

Recently, a new method has been developed to produce large monodisperse population of droplets. Key is to ensure a droplet diameter independent of the flow rate in each parallel channel. This chip, the Millipede, raises high hope, but is limited to large droplets. Here we present a glass microfluidic chip, the Nanopede, designed on the same principle, downscaled to produce femtoliter droplets (diameter 1μm). Prior to chip design, theoretical analysis of flow and destabilization has been performed. Finally, this chip has been used to lead self-assembly experiment within these nanodroplets, a first step toward hierarchically organized metamaterials.
