Electrowetting occurs with the electrical control of the surface wetting properties through the application of an electric potential.
A simulation of electrowetting driven droplet dynamics is performed using the COMSOL Multiphysics level-set method for a sessile droplet and for a droplet in a microchannel. The response of the drop to a step voltage is studied. The contact angle at one edge of the drop is varied in order to show droplet actuation.
