The area of microfluidics has experienced a tremendous increase in research activities in recent years with a wide range of applications, such as micro heat exchangers and energy conversion devices, microreactors, lab-on-chip devices, micro total chemical analysis systems (μTAS) etc. The occurrence of two phase flow can lead to several mechanisms enhancing or extending the performance of single phase microfluidic devices [1]. On the other hand, in a micro fuel cell the second, non-immiscible phase is considered to hamper the performance of the fuel cell [2]. Regardless of its effect, two phase flows in microfluidics deserve special research attention.
