Abstract

A valveless microfluidic pump using a synthetic jet actuated by PZT diaphragm is developed and manufactured. In this approach, the pump chamber sealed at one side connects with an emitting nozzle at another side. The designed device is based on a multi-physics simulation and successfully tested using a prototype fabricated by a low-cost additive manufacturing technique. Various designing parameters including types of pumping liquids and sizes of PZT membrane were considered to optimize the pumping performance. The present pump is supposed to satisfy a large range of applications from mixing to fluidic controlling.
