Abstract

The electrohydrodynamic instability of the interface between two liquids with different physical and electrical properties in plane Poiseuille flow is used to form monodisperse droplets in a square channel. The drop size and formation rate are controlled by simply controlling the flow rates and the amplitude of the electric field applied across the channel.
