Abstract

We present the continuous manufacturing of particles by fluidic processing using precursor particles that can be conveyed and fused to obtain anisotropic microparticles with unique sequences and shapes. The shape of the anisotropic particles is formed by employing both geometrical confinement and microfluidic control to collect precursor particles into a narrow, terminal channel. The controlled manufacturing technique of microparticles with programmable anisotropy and sequence is important to emergent applications such as chemical sensors, microbarcodes, and optical materials.
