dc.description.abstract <p>Mass production of functional nanoparticles may be realized through flash nanoprecipiation in microscale reactors such as the multi-inlet vortex reactor (MIVR). A comprehensive understanding of mixing in the MIVR is required for process control and reactor design. Mixing in the MIVR is studied using a technique coupling laser induced fluorescence with confocal laser scanning microscopy. It is shown to provide meaningful qualitative and statistical data of the scalar field for analysis and comparison with numerical simulations. Data were collected for four flow rates, showing that mixing is incomplete even at the highest flow rate.</p>
