We develop a rotationally actuated fluidic device for controlledgeneration of microbubbles in a lab-on-a-compact-disk based environment. Use of such a strategy essentially implicates that one may employ simplistic, versatile, flexible, and economized microfabrication as well as fluidic actuation techniques, instead of more complex traditional methodologies, for microbubblegeneration and control. We further demonstrate that the spatio-temporal frequencies and size distributions of the generated bubbles may be judiciously controlled by simply tailoring the rotational speeds, corresponding to given channel dimensions and fluid-substrate combinations.
