	  abstract     = {The superhydrophobic surface is widely used to reduce
friction for the flow inside micro-channel and can be used to
control/manipulate fluid, cells and even proteins in lab-on-chip.
Fabricating micro grooves on hydrophobic surfaces is a common
method to obtain such superhydrophobic surface. This study
utilized the numerical method to investigate the effect of eccentric
micro-grooves on the friction of flow inside micro-channel. A detailed
parametric study was conducted to reveal how the eccentricity of
micro-grooves affects the micro-channel flow under different grooves
sizes, channel heights, Reynolds number. The results showed that
the superhydrophobic surface with eccentric micro-grooves induces
less friction than the counter part with aligning micro-grooves, which
means requiring less power for pumps.},
