Abstract: This project presents a 3D graphical visualization of an electrowetting-on-dielectric (EWOD) device. EWOD is the process altering the surface tension of droplet on a dielectric surface via the application of an electric field. EWOD is used to manipulate droplet in digital microfluidic devices via the creation of a surface tension gradient. Fluid flow in digital microfluidic devices have been visualized using techniques including micro particle image velocimetry, and direct imaging. This project presents a 3D graphical visualization of the key physical phenomenon that occurs during the creation, transportation, merging, mixing, filtering, and splitting of liquid droplets within an EWOD device. The visualization was created using 3D graphics software as a series of meshes, and then animated.
