Dynamic On-Chip micro Temperature and Flow Sensor for miniaturized lab-on-a-chip instruments (DOCFlaTS)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The purpose of this project is to design, fabricate, and characterize a Dynamic On-Chip Flow and Temperature Sensor (DOCFlaTS) to mature and enable miniaturized lab-on-a-chip microfluidic instruments for a future missions to planetary satellites and primitive bodies.

We will design a temperature and flow sensor that will be compatible with other NASA funded micro fluidic systems. This design is a proof-of-concept sensor that has the ability to sense temperature and flow rate changes. Furthermore, this can be calibrated using macro-scale systems.
