Abstract

We present a technique for measuring simultaneously the fluid and the particle velocity under strong DC and low-frequency AC electric fields in a microchanel filled with an aqueous suspension. We also report observations of a reversible aggregation of particles that can be tuned by varying the field strength and frequency of an applied AC field.
