Abstract

An electro-conjugate fluid (ECF) is a kind of dielectric fluid which produces a strong jet flow (ECF jet) when subjected to high DC voltage. Namely, a pair of electrodes generates nonuniform electric field, which induces the ECF jet. It is known that some kinds of ECF may possibly produce an impingement jet which occurs between electrodes. This study proposes an impingement type micro fluidic device whose power source is integrated by using the ECF. We developed a prototype and confirmed our concept.
