Researchers from the MESA+ Institute at the University of Twente, the FOM Foundation and Eindhoven University of Technology together with the industrial partners ASML and Océ have developed a new method to manipulate miniscule droplets. The fundamental research could be useful in completely different areas: from miniscule laboratories on chips, to the semiconductor industry and oil extraction. The research was published on 11 April 2014 in the renowned scientific journal Nature Communications.
