Abstract: Bulk acoustic wave induced mixing in microfluidic systems has been studied by using a pair of small size ultrasonic transducers integrated into a prototype polydimethylsiloxane device. The acoustic properties of the integrated ultrasonic transducers were evaluated, demonstrating the generation of bulk acoustic wave in the mixing chamber when a low ac voltage is applied. Then, the mixing efficiency of the device was studied by using two stream laminar flows and taking into account the particular geometry of the mixing chamber. Because of the limited power consumption, the system should be compatible with the requirements of a number of applications in both analytical chemistry and biology.
