FLUIDICS: WHAT IT IS, WHERE IT IS HEADING - AND HOW IT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD WE LINE IN
Tesař V.
pages 3 - 12, full text

Fluidics, technique of handling fluids, is usually meant to imply absence of moving components. It is less known and used than it deserves considering the advantages it offers. Recently its applications became more widespread thanks to two development directions. On one hand, it is the power fluidics, handling larger flow rates. Newly developed are no-moving-part fluidic pumps for dangerous liquids (in particular radioactive ones) — and fluidic oscillators for generation of microbubbles used in waste water processing and growth of unicellular plants. The other rapidly growing development direction is microfluidics, often integral with electronic circuitry on the same substrate. It has immense possibilities in sensors and also in handling small amounts of fluids e.g. in microchemistry.KEY
