Congrats Steve (now at Intel, Chandler AZ) and Jeff on publication of your work in MS&T on three component velocimetry in micro flows.
Jonathan Posner and Shelley Anna, Carnegie Mellon University, were elected by the conference attendees to organize the 2015 microfluidics GRC meeting. The invited speakers and GRC location are TBD.
Abstract: A membraneless microfluidic fuel cell stack architecture is presented that reuses reactants from one cell to a subsequent one, analogous to PEMFC stacks. On-chip reactant reuse improves fuel utilization and power densities relative to single cells. The reactants flow separately through porous electrodes and interface with a non-reacting and conductive electrolyte which maintains their… Read more »
Abstract Portable devices rely on battery systems that contribute largely to the overall device form factor and delay portability due to recharging. Membraneless microfluidic fuel cells are considered as the next generation of portable power sources for their compatibility with higher energy density reactants. Microfluidic fuel cells are potentially cost effective and robust because they… Read more »
