Microfluidics: asymmetric and symmetric t-junctions

  1. Aug 13, 2014 #1
    I have been looking on the web but I can't seem to find a textbook answer that describes the difference between microfluidic t-junctions that are symmetric and those that are asymmetric.
    From some papers I've gathered that you can make t-junctions asymmetric by changing the hydraulic resistance which can be done by changing the lengths or widths of the channels extending from the t-junction. However, is that simply the difference between the two or am I missing something else?
    Any help would be appreciated thanks!
