Ion wind is recently applied in various research areas such as the biomedical engineering, microfluidic mixing and particle manipulation. In this work, a bipolar ion wind generator configured by parallel arranged electrodes is used for centrifugal mixing applications. With the proposed configuration, negative and positive ion winds are simultaneously generated, mixed and then neutralized by each other while travelling toward liquid surface. The efficiency of the device was investigated both computationally and experimentally. The mixing of liquid occurred in different ways when the system is activated by either direct or alternating currents. Furthermore, the mixing is dependent on the dimension of electrode tip.
