Applied Electrohydrodynamics Laboratory

Equipment/facility: Facility

    Description

    The Applied Electrohydrodynamics Laboratory explores electric and magnetic field-driven phenomena in suspensions, which are mixtures of solid particles and a liquid. Suspensions are a ubiquitous feature of our daily environment — paints, blood, milk, inks — while they are also utilized in a wide variety of industries. Ongoing projects in the lab focus on understanding how the electric and magnetic interactions between particles affect their arrangement, and thereby, their suspension properties. Practical applications are related to the development of electro-magnetic methods utilizing a difference in polarizability between suspended particles and a suspending liquid for the precise manipulation, separation and sorting of particles in suspensions. These methods do not require moving parts and employ an electrical or magnetic force acting on a particle that is insensitive to the particle charge, which is difficult to control
