In summary, the work and the experiments described in this thesis are related to the description of an unusual and smart way for the manipulation of liquid and polymeric materials. In fact, the term “pyro-fluidic platform” would express the ability of working on fluids (liquid and/or polymer) exploiting the pyro-electric effect activated onto a ferroelectric crystal. A wide variety of functionalities of the pyro-electrohydrodynamic platform, such as droplet self-assembling and dispensing, have been described for manipulating multiphase liquids at micro as well as nanoscale.
