Squeezing droplets and shooting jets at them to inject

From the series of squeezing and playing with droplets, and building on the work that we did on microfluidic jets impacting on droplets, Miguel and I decided to confine droplets between two glass walls. This allowed us to visualise and make a deep analaysis of the generated cavity when the injection is made. Furthermore, we could use a wide range of materials, from soft solids (agarose gels) to Newtonian and non-Newtonian droplets. Our research titled “Cavity dynamics after the injection of a microfluidic jet onto capillary bridges” has now been published at Soft Matter.
