Abstract: In this paper, the IR laser photothermally induced phase change characteristics in the microchannels with different wettabilities were studied using visual experiments. The hydrophobic microchannel was obtained by the hydrophobic nature of the PDMS material while the hydrophilic microchannels were obtained by the inert gas plasma surface treatments. Effects of the contact angle, laser power and spot position were investigated. It is interesting to find the change of the wettability and laser power could alter … Show more
