Abstract

A surface tension driven micropump proves to be a simple and attractive passive method to drive fluid flow in microdevices. We observed the appearance of a backward flow. Consideration of inertia of the fluid in the channel revealed that it alone is insufficient to explain the observed backward flow. We discovered that rotational flow inside the outlet droplet could be a source of inertia explaining the generation of the backward flow. We have determined that the volumes ratio of the initial outlet- inlet drop correlate with the occurrence of the backward flow.
