Abstract

We describe a novel method for droplet transport combining electrowetting on dielectric (EWOD) and the diode-like behavior of valve metals to achieve unique actuation performance. While traditional EWOD droplet transport requires switching of voltage between multiple electrodes, our method, which we term continuous rectified electrowetting, utilizes a simple single electrode and a DC voltage to move a 50 μl droplet 28 mm with velocities up to 32 mm s-1.
