New publication on the optimization of Tesla diodes for microfluidic applications  


In a joint effort among the group of theoretical physics, microsystems engineering and us a study was published showing an automated approach to optimize the geometry of Tesla diodes in terms of diodicity and low pressure drop for very low volume flow rates in the Journal of  Microsystems and Nanoengineering.
