This web site is provides results of studies of microfluidic devices, to determine mixing properties, flow properties, and coorelations and design information for laminar flow, thus augmenting the extensive information available for turbulent flow. Most microfluidic devices involve laminar flow and diffusion. The students mentioned here were Dreyfus Undergraduate Research Scholars at the University of Washington, under the Senior Mentor Program awarded to Professor Finlayson by the

Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation, Inc.
