Abstract

In microfluidic devices, droplets are normally formed using T-junction or flow focus mechanisms. While both afford a high degree of control over drop formation, they are limited in maximum production rate by the jetting transition. Here, we introduce a new drop formation mechanism that is not limited by jetting, allowing much faster drop production.
