Special Issue "Micromixer & Micromixing"
A special issue of Micromachines (ISSN 2072-666X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2015)
Establishing effective mixing in small scales is of the utmost importance in the design and operation of micromachines. Although numerous ideas have been proposed for enhancing the mixture of fluids in small-scale devices, the subject still deserves our attention because no generalized guidelines presently exist as to, e.g., the optimization of a given mixer system. Aside from the aspect of mixing performance, with respect to the fabrication of micromachines, such as lab-on-chips, the mixer unit should be as simple as possible so as to reduce the cost of products. A Special Issue on “Micromixer & Micromixing” is thus purposed to provide a research forum for scientists and engineers to exchange ideas of mixing enhancement and to present practical applications of mixing technologies in specific machines. We welcome studies, not only on small-scale machines, but also on large-scale systems if the results are relevant to journal readers. Various kinds of fluid-driving tools for mixing, such as acoustic, electrokinetic, and magnetic forces will hopefully be considered by the contributors. We also expect a wide range of applications to be discussed, including those involving heat transfer, chemical reactions, biology, food, etc.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Micromachines is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
