Fast and programmable transport of liquid droplets on a solid substrate is desirable in microfluidic, thermal, biomedical, and energy devices. Past research has focused on designing substrates with asymmetric structures or gradient wettability where droplet behaviors are passively controlled, or by applying external electric, thermal, magnetic, or acoustic stimuli that either require the fabrication of electrodes or a strong applied field. In this work, we demonstrate tunable and programmable droplet motion on liquid-infused surfaces (LIS) and inside solid-surface capillary channels using low-intensity light and photo-responsive surfactants. When illuminated by the light of appropriate wavelengths, the surfactants can reversibly change their molecular conformation thereby tuning interfacial tensions in a multi-phase fluid system. This generates a Marangoni flow that drives droplet motions. The method demonstrated in this study serves as a simple and exciting new approach for the dynamic manipulation of droplets for microfluidic, thermal, and water harvesting devices.
