Joining of polymer parts by ultrasonic welding is a process known for many years. However, when micro channels shall be welded, this and other processes become difficult to be handled. Therefore, new approaches shall be investigated in this project.
There are several new ideas which can be tried out. Thus, this project can also be done by two students together. You will fabricate simple micro fluidic systems by ultrasonic hot embossing and welding and find out what are the best processing conditions. In the framework of this project, you will get to know the production of micro fluidic systems by ultrasonic fabrication ((http://www. kemikro.rwth-aachen.de/cms/KEmikro/Forschung/~hfai/ Forschungsschwerpunkte/lidx/1/) and milling with a CNC machine.
You need to like experimental work. You do not need to have prior knowledge of micro fabrication.
