The author is currently preparing a full textbook on microfluidics for Springer publishing. The book is intended for researchers and students of microengineering and related fields. The book surveys all topics presented on this website in much greater detail. Over 1300 references are given to up-to-date publications in microfluidics and related fields. The book is split into two parts. After introducing the the topic of microfluidics and the applications, the first part develops the physico-chemical principles underlying microfluidics as well as fundamwental operating principles. Topics covered are The second part focuses on the implementation of microfluidic components for various fields of application:
