Small-scale engineering: A new strategy for the production of monodisperse colloid particles with precise control of their size, shape, and composition has been developed. Highly monodisperse liquid droplets are formed by using a microfluidic device. The droplets are shaped in a microchannel (spheres, disks, and rods; see images) and solidified in situ by either polymerization or thermal setting.
