Abstract : The patent is for a laminar fluidic device for sensing fluid properties that affect viscosity, the device comprising a source of supply for directing a jet of fluid outwardly from a nozzle, a pair of control channels disposed on opposite sides of the jet of fluid for deflecting the jet in response to a difference in the resistence of one control channel with respect to the other control channel, such resistence difference effecting a pressure differential across the jet, a pair of output channels for receiving the jet of fluid in accordance with the deflection thereof, and vent means disposed between the nozzle and the output channels.
