Microjet generator for highly viscous fluids

(Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology) Generating microjets of highly viscous fluids is important to prevent blurring in key modern applications such as inkjet printing, but such technology is being held back because most printers handle only low-viscosity liquids, e.g. water-based ink. This study proposes a simple structure that uses an impulsive force to generate high-viscosity microjets of fluids similar even to honey, and with non-Newtonian properties.
