The proposed method is based on monitoring fluorescence amplitude as a function of the convolution of a laser beam with segmented flow consisting of two immiscible liquids, one containing fluorescent dye. The fluorescence amplitude is determined by the flow rate and the droplet shape, which is affected by the channel surface properties. We demonstrated that the technique enables the determination of the hydrophobicity of channel surfaces, a crucial property required for the generation of segmented flow or emulsions for applications such as digital PCR.
