Characterizing Self-Forming Lipid Bilayers in Low-Voltage Electrowetting Systems.

Guha, Ingrid.

Abstract: This thesis reports the first-time demonstration of lipid bilayers as reversibly wettable dielectrics in electrowetting systems and characterizes various physical and electrical properties of lipid bilayers, with the aim of assessing the capabilities and limitations of using these thin liquid films in electrowetting-powered microfluidic devices. Lipid bilayers enable high contact angle c... read more
