Keywords: acoustic streaming, induced-charge electroosmosis, mixing

Abstract:
We present two different concepts for energizing (e.g. mixing, pumping) of micro flows, which rely on the coupling of acoustic and electromagnetic energy into a liquid. Both concepts are analyzed using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methods and experimental validation.
