In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
This thesis examines the use of sound waves to manipulate particles in a microfluidic system for applications in lab-on-a-chip technology. Using novel acoustic fields, microscopic particles that are analogous to cells and bacteria can be sorted based on size and translocated at will within the microfluidic system. This technology could be used to improve the accessibility and affordability of medical diagnostics and monitoring.
