Figures

Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

(Color online) Schematic of the experimental setup. Syringe 1 is connected to the high-voltage output of the power supply while Syringe 2 is connected to the ground. The volume of the fluid flowing through the capillary is measured by observing the displacement of the meniscus position as the fluid enters into the microsyringe. The particle motion in the capillary is recorded by a camera connected to a microscope. The whole assembly is fixed onto a stage and is kept horizontal. The inset shows the airtight connection between the capillary and the syringe reservoirs.

FIG. 2.

(Color online) The diagram for choosing the dimensions of the needle and the initial position of the meniscus. (a) Flow diagram. (b) The isoclines of the ratios and are plotted in the plane. The ratio is decreasing with time as the fluid flows into the needle. The points show the values of these parameters for our experimental conditions.

FIG. 3.

(Color online) dc-field data on the apparent particle velocity, , recorded in two, presumably identical, capillaries for several successive cycles of increasing and then decreasing the field strength (both in steps every ). Each data point is the average value of the observed motion of 10 randomly chosen particles.

FIG. 4.

(Color online) The datasets (about 200) of the simultaneously measured fluid mobility, (black squares), and of the particle mobilities (each averaged over 25–30 particles), (green triangles) and (blue stars), obtained from all the dc experiments. The means and standard deviations are , , and . The data are plotted versus (a) time, (b) field strength, and (c) capillary length. The horizontal lines show the mean values of the corresponding quantities averaged over all the dc experiments.

FIG. 5.

The datasets (about 200) of the simultaneously measured particle and fluid mobilities obtained from all the dc experiments: (a) vs and (b) vs . The error bars show the standard deviations of and taken over 25–30 particles. The correlation coefficients are 0.87 between and and between and .

FIG. 6.

(Color online) The zero-mean distribution of the relative mobilities for about 5000 individual particles: (a) the apparent particle mobility and (b) the particle electrophoretic mobility. The procedure used to obtain the data in this histogram is described in Sec. IV A. The lines show the best-fitting zero-mean Gaussian distribution yielding a standard deviation of 7% for the apparent particle mobility and 14% for the particle electrophoretic mobility.

FIG. 7.

The datasets (about 60) for the electro-osmotic fluid mobility, , measured in the dc experiments without the particles. The means and standard deviations are . The data are plotted vs (a) time, (b) field strength, and (c) capillary length. The horizontal lines show the mean values of the corresponding quantities averaged over these dc experiments.

FIG. 8.

(Color online) The datasets (about 200) of the effective particle mobility in ac fields (each averaged over three particles) obtained from all the ac experiments. The mean and the standard deviation are . The data are plotted against (a) field strength, (b) field frequency, and (c) capillary length. The horizontal line shows the mean value.

Image of FIG. 9.
FIG. 9.

(Color online) The zero-mean distribution of relative mobilities for about 600 individual particles. The procedure used to obtain the data in this histogram is described in Sec. IV B. The lines show the best-fitting zero-mean Gaussian distribution which yields a standard deviation of 4% for .
