Flow-focusing technology: The straightforward, fast production of microparticles of a controlled size (a few micrometers, see Figure) using the combination of a flow-focusing device and a solvent extraction/evaporation process is shown. This strategy relies on the design of microscale systems that possess a high input energy efficiency.
