Show Summary Details


Micron-resolution Particle Image Velocimetry (micro-PIV) refers to the measurement of fluid motion with resolved length scales ranging from 10-4 – 10-7 m using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). The micro-PIV technique that is commonly used in microfluidics was introduced by Santiago et al. (1998) and Meinhart et al. (1999), where they used epi-fluorescent illumination to record discrete particle images. Since this early work, there have many variations and extensions of the technique. As a result, the original micro-PIV technique is now commonly referred to as “classical micro-PIV”. The purpose of this review article is to extend the previous reviews on micro-PIV, and to update the reader of recent developments that have occurred over the past several years in micro-PIV.
