Ismail, Noor Faezah and Md Yunus, Nurul Amziah and Sulaiman, Nasri and Mohtar, Mohd Nazim and Abdul Halin, Izhal and Ahmad, Desa (2017) Joule heating effect on microdroplet electrowetting platform chip. In: 2017 IEEE Asia Pacific Conference on Postgraduate Research in Microelectronics and Electronics (PrimeAsia), 31 Oct.-2 Nov. 2017, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. (pp. 77-80).


The electrowetting (EW) operation was demonstrated to observe the effect of Joule heating and electrolysis. Joule heating is an electrothermal effect, which is induced from the conductivity of electrode that enables the charge to flow through it. Electrolysis is a decomposition of liquid into gas when it is in direct contact with activated electrode. The experiments were conducted using Potassium Chloride, KCl solution. The voltage supply used was in AC and the frequency and voltage were varied. The experiment objective was to see the effect of Joule heating on the flowing of droplet.
