Opportunities for microfluidic devices at Free Electron Lasers Workshop

In the Microfluidics Workshop (15 June 2017), the European XFEL community discussed the benefits that microfluidics could bring into sample environments at the facility's instruments, allowing new experiments to be performed and leading to new scientific questions. A broad spectrum of devices, manufactured using several techniques from various materials and for different scopes, was presented. Talks and discussions promoted an exchange of information and expertise, showing the potential of tools developed by microfluidic experts for experiments at the European XFEL and identifying the key points that can improve sample environments for liquid jet experiments.
