Hydrodynamic Trap for Directed Self-Assembly of MEMS

This paper presents the realization of a hydrodynamic microfluidic trap with the goal of sorting MEMS for self-assembly experiments in liquid. A simplified analytical design rule has been compiled and numerically verified. Microfluidic devices have been fabricated in PDMS and PMMA beads have been trapped in a controlled way, validating the concept.
