Microfluidic Devices & Heterogeneous Systems Lab

Our Research

The phenomena we observe in our everyday life, at the macro-level, are governed by rules which are significantly different from what rules the small-scale world. At small-scales interfaces become important and we use them as a unique tool to delve into many unexplored territories in science. Follow these links to know more about our work in the Microfluidic Devices and Heterogeneous Systems clusters.
