We would like to point an interested reader to the recent report by Guillot and Colin (P. Guillot and A. Colin, Phys. Rev. E, 2005, 72, 066301) which describes the flow of two immiscible phases through a microfluidic T-junction and provides insights into the transition between the regimes of steady state parallel flow of the two phases and periodic formation of droplets, and into the mechanism of break-up that is not driven by shear stresses exerted on the drops by the continuous phase.
