Abstract

The goal of this study is to realize an emulsification device for the generation of sub-micron size monodisperse emulsions. We have fabricated and tested the device which consists of a microchannel plate and an ultrasonic vibrating plate. The device can realize continuous flow system and those plates are easily stacked. We have succeeded in generating emulsions which has a diameter of 80 nm.
