flow layer. A valve is created whenever a control channel crosses a flow channel (Figure 18.12). The resulting thin membrane at the junction between the two channels can be deflected by fluidic actuation (Thorsen et al., 2002; Unger et al., 2000).


The schematic A of Figure 18.12 shows the orientation of the control layer and the flow layer. The schematic B of Figure 18.12 shows the valve closing for rectangular and rounded channels. The dotted lines indicate the contour of the top of the channel for a rectangular (left) and a rounded (right) channel as pressure is increased. In the example shown in Figure 18.13(a), rectangular channels are considered. Making multiple, independently actuated valves in a device requires independent control of the pressure applied to each control    line.    Figure    18.13(a)    shows    an    example    of such    a    device.
