SAW synthesis with IDTs array and the inverse filter: toward a versatile SAW toolbox for microfluidics and biological applications

Abstract

Surface acoustic waves (SAWs) are versatile tools to manipulate fluids at small scales for microfluidics and biological applications. A non-exhaustive list of operations that can be performed with SAW includes sessile droplet displacement, atomization, division and merging but also the actuation of fluids embedded in microchannels or the manipulation of suspended particles. However, each of these operations requires a specific design of the wave generation system, the so-called interdigitated transducers (IDTs). Depending on the application, it might indeed be necessary to generate focused or plane, propagating or standing, aligned or shifted waves. Furthermore, the possibilities offered by more complex wave-fields such as acoustical vortices for particle tweezing and liquid twisting cannot be explored with classical IDTs. In this paper, we show that the inverse filter technique coupled with an interdigitated transducers array (IDTA) enables to synthesize all classical wave-fields used in microfluidics and biological applications with a single multifunction platform. It also enables to generate swirling SAWs, whose potential for the on-chip synthesis of tailored acoustical vortices has been demonstrated lately. The possibilities offered by this platform is illustrated by performing successively many operations on sessile droplets with the same system.
